Classified Ads appear for a 2-month cycle on the OBA website. In addition, if received by the deadline (below), the ad will be printed in the classified section of the Ontario Bee Journal, unless directed otherwise.

If a Classifed Ad request is received after the OBJ submission deadline, it will only appear online for that cycle. Online Classifieds garner high visibility, and can be revised or withdrawn during their cycle, should, for example the item is sold or the price changes.
