Facebook on Monday debuted its repertoire of tools to make advertising in the 2019 election more transparent, and with it have shared the issues Canadian users will be required to prove their identity to advertise about.

Along with ads about candidates, parties or elected posts, advertisers in Canada will have to be authorized to post ads on Facebook about civil and social rights, the economy, environmental politics, health, immigration, political values and governance, and security and foreign policy.

To become authorized to post ads about these topics, users have to pass a series of verification tests that are largely based on ensuring that the advertisers, whether it be an individual or organization, are from Canada.
