At the city, advertising refers to the sale of a municipal asset to an external company, organization, association or individual to influence, educate or inform the public. Advertising opportunities also imply that there is no direct relationship between the advertiser and the City of Kitchener.

All advertisements must meet the city's advertising standards and principles, which is guided by the Canadian Code of Advertising Standards (CCAS). The city will not accept advertising whose reputation, products, services or message could negatively impact the city's public image or reputation.
