Only submissions that meet the following criteria will be posted publicly:

  1. Does not contain profanity or content that is defamatory, threatening, hateful, personally disparaging, harassing, indecent, vulgar, obscene, illegal, immoral or sexually explicit (partially masking profanity or other unacceptable language by substituting asterisks or other symbols into a word is not acceptable if the word remains recognizable);

  3. Does not contain information about, or images (e.g., photographs, videos or illustrations) of, any person other than the person submitting the content;

Citizens are encouraged to post in the online discussion forum. However, should you want to submit your email privately you can. In order to protect privacy and the personal stories that some people may want to share with government privately, personal submissions will not be posted to this site unless requested by the submitter. Personal submissions must also meet the criteria above to be posted publicly.

All submissions will be read and considered as part of the analysis of all public feedback. The Province reserves the right to decide on whether a submission meets the above criteria and is posted publicly to this web site.

Please note that all submissions will be reviewed according to the above criteria prior to being posted to the website. Depending on the volume of submissions received, it may require several weeks to complete the review and posting of all submissions.
