Interacting with Us on Social Media
Content and Frequency
We use our social media accounts as an alternative method of sharing the content posted on our website and to communicate with our stakeholders. By following our social media accounts (by “following,” “liking” or “subscribing”), you can expect to see information about the programs and services we provide.
We understand that the Web is a 24/7 medium, and your comments are welcome at any time. However, our social media channels are managed during local business hours (8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time), Monday to Friday (excluding statutory holidays). The Board will read all comments submitted during the above-noted business hours, but will not respond to each comment received. Any replies to comments will be posted during local business hours. Comments submitted outside local business hours will also be read as soon as possible and replied to during local business hours. You should expect to see new content during these hours, but we may post new content outside those hours in the event of an emergency or if content is of significant value to our social media community.
Unavailability of Platforms
Since the servers of social media platforms are managed by a third party, our social media accounts are subject to downtime that may be out of our control. As such, we accept no responsibility for platforms becoming unresponsive or unavailable.
Links to Other Websites and Ads
Our social media accounts may post or display links or ads for websites that are not under our control. These links are provided solely for the convenience of users.

We cannot engage in issues of party politics that would undermine our integrity or our institutional independence, or answer questions that break the rules of this notice.
We reserve the right to edit or remove comments that:

Our social media accounts are not Government of Canada websites and represent only our presence on third-party service providers.

Many social media platforms have multiple language options and provide instructions on how to set your preferences.

We reply to comments in the official language in which they are posted. If we think the response is a question of general public interest, we may respond in both official languages.
We may share links that direct users to sites of organizations or other entities that are not subject to the Official Languages Act and available only in the language(s) in which they are written. When content is available in only one language, we make an effort to provide similar content in the other official language.
