Unsolicited commercial flyers and publications on campus

The Sir George Williams Campus of Concordia University (and to a lesser degree the Loyola Campus)
has been inundated with unsolicited commercial flyers and publications and some unauthorized non-commercial publications.

This practice is prohibited by University policy SG-3 (Policy on the Distribution of Publications on Campus) and Montreal municipal bylaw RRVM D-4 (Advertising Material), Article 8, which forbids deposit of publicity flyers at locations where the owner has posted his/her refusal to receive them.

These unauthorized publications have contributed to a paper pollution problem (material and visual), added to the workload of our maintenance staff and damaged University property (escalator jams and
flyers glued to University property).

Therefore, the University's security service will be coordinating with the MUC Police to enforce the
bylaw and stop the unlawful distribution of these publications on campus. Distribution companies will be susceptible to fines of $200 and individuals distributing this material will be liable for fines of $100.
