Social Media Policy

What We Post on Social Media

On Twitter, we share updates and information on what we do and how we work. We also share relevant media articles and City of Toronto announcements that may be of interest to our followers. We do not share op-eds or other opinion pieces.
We welcome and encourage online engagement.
Ombudsman Toronto does not accept complaints on its social media platforms. If you have a complaint, please visit our website for information on how to make a complaint.
Social media posts are not in any way binding or an authoritative source of law, policy, advice or guidance from Ombudsman Toronto.
Any associated account interactions (such as liking, sharing, retweeting and linking of content, or following users) should not be considered as an endorsement of any kind.
