Community Event Posting Guidelines

The City of Orillia will post information regarding activities, programs, meetings, events and festivals organized by the City and its affiliates on its website calendar.  The City reserves the right to post any additional events to its website calendar it deems to be in the community interest.

Public event information will be included on the City's calendar if it is within the boundary of the City of Orillia or for any township whose boundaries touch the City of Orillia boundaries.

Events submitted by staff or requests from the public will not be published on the City's website calendar if they:

  • Are commercial in nature and, in the City's sole opinion, are attempting to advertise, promote or sell products or services of an individual or an individual business unless a City sponsored or sanctioned event;
  • Promote, exhibit, illustrate or manifest hate or obscene/pornographic/sexual content of any kind;
  • Promote an individual religion or religious service;
  • Events deemed by the City of Orillia to be political in nature will not be posted (with the exception of notices of "All Candidates Meetings", "All Candidates Debates", Ward Meetings, voting locations and similar general election information pertaining to municipal, provincial and federal elections);
  • Fundraising events unless they are for registered charities, non-profit organizations, or in the City's opinion a community building event not for business profit. The City of Orillia does not benefit from the proceeds of the fundraising event.

Notwithstanding the criteria listed above, the City reserves the right to post, refuse to post, or remove any event from its website calendar at any time, without notice.

To be considered for publication an event submission must be accompanied by a name and contact information of an individual from the event organizing committee. Anonymous postings of events will not be published. 

Decisions on whether or not to add, remove or deny the posting of an event to the City's website calendar will be made by calendar approvers.

If you have further questions, please send your inquiry by e-mail to the Website Advisory Team.
