Twitter Policy

This policy outlines how the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) uses its Twitter accounts CSA_News and
ACVM _Nouvelles.


If you follow us, you can expect to receive notifications from us when content relating to some or all of the following subjects is posted to the CSA and related websites:

  • CSA News Releases
  • CSA event or program messages (for example, Fraud Prevention Month)
  • Significant updates of interest to the CSA Website (new tools, new sections, CSA Disciplined Lists updates, Investor Alerts, etc)
  • Links to CSA reports or publications
  • Retweet content published by CSA members regarding securities enforcement and investor education initiatives.

Twitter as a source of official policy 

Tweets should not be considered as the authoritative source of new policy or guidance from the CSA. Please refer to the CSA website for official updates.


At this time, we do not autofollow. We follow only selected Twitter accounts from our partners or stakeholders. Being followed by us does not imply endorsement of any kind.


We may occasionally retweet content that we deem of interest to our audience. Retweeting by us should not be interpreted as an endorsement of the originator, the content of the tweet or of any organization the tweet refers to.

@Replies and direct messages

The CSA does not reply individually to messages we receive on Twitter. @replies and direct messages may be read and any emerging themes or helpful suggestions may be passed to the relevant people in the CSA.

We will not process complaints received on Twitter. If you have a question, complaint or tip, contact your local securities regulator.

If you are a reporter, send your questions to or contact your local securities regulator. Do not submit questions on Twitter.


If you have any questions about this policy, email us at

We accept no responsibility for a lack of service due to Twitter downtime or for any other reason.
