There are new rules to the Canadian advertising code.
And they could change the way you advertise on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other platforms.
The guidelines are designed to ensure Canadians can get a more informed and creative advertising message.
But they also signal that the federal government wants to tighten the rules for how Canadians use online advertising.
And in a bid to do so, it’s asking for a new review of what’s been done with traditional online advertising in Canada.
It’s also asking for the release of a report on how the rules are working.
The new rules come into effect Aug. 3, meaning businesses will be able to run ads for up to a year in a row, with up to five ads per month allowed on any site.
There are some notable changes in the rules, too.
There’s no limit on the amount of time ads can be in place, but advertisers can no longer have ads that are longer than two weeks old.
Ads can’t be longer than 30 seconds.
Ads must have an average duration of 30 seconds or less.
Advertisement A 30-second ad is defined as one that reaches a certain audience of 15-20 people and is posted in a matter of seconds.
The rules also prohibit the use of “narrative-driven” ads.
Ads are defined as “content that is designed to convey a message in a manner that is more complex than a simple story,” but without using “flattering or persuasive language.”
The guidelines also say that ads must not use “inaccurate, misleading or deceptive terms.”
If you have questions about the rules or want more information about what’s changed, the department is asking for comment from Canadians.

The department also has a blog that answers questions from Canadians, including questions about advertising.

“It’s going to be an interesting discussion about whether it’s time to rethink advertising in the digital era,” said John Stapleton, president of Marketing & Communications for Advertising and Marketing Consultants, a consulting firm.
There are also concerns that the new rules could hurt advertising in traditional media.
“The rules will impact the ability of advertisers to be successful, which is the bottom line,” said Staplette.
However, he said, there are plenty of examples of companies that have used the same strategies to succeed, like Facebook, Instagram, Google, Twitter and Netflix.
Stapleton said the rules also won’t hurt traditional media businesses that rely on social media.
“I think people understand that social media is not a substitute for advertising,” he said.
And he said that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
“If you can’t compete, you don’t have to compete.
I think social media has allowed people to connect with each other in ways that weren’t possible before,” he added.
What the rules mean for you and your businessThe new rules don’t mean that you can run ads on Facebook without breaking the rules.
Instead, you’ll have to follow a new process.
Ads that reach an audience of between 15 and 20 people will be required to use an online advertising format, known as an “ad text ad.”
Ad text ads are typically shorter than traditional ads, but they have a slightly different message.
Ads will have to use the same “narrow focus” style of ads, which means they’ll have shorter titles, more images and a shorter description than traditional ad texts.
Ads with “a more engaging or informative content” will also be allowed.
If an ad isn’t clear, it will have a “distinguishing mark” that will be visible on the screen for 30 seconds at a time.
This will give the ad a clearer, more relevant and less distracting message.
For example, if you want to promote a new product, you could say, “I’ve been searching for a good coffee maker,” or you could advertise “a good, simple, easy way to make your own.”
“I can say the same thing about my ad that my competitors would have to say,” said Kevin Housh, director of research for Ad Content, a digital advertising company.
When it comes to video ads, ads with a higher duration, which can last for up “several hours,” are allowed.
Ads shorter than 20 seconds are still required to follow the same format, but only if they reach an “audience of less than 15 people.”
And ads that reach the same audience, which the new rule defines as between 15-18 people, are allowed to use traditional advertising formats.
The rules will also allow ad formats longer than one hour to be used on Facebook and Twitter.
In the case of video ads on those platforms, you’re
