The Media Relations Officers work with the media to provide the community with accurate and timely information. Information is often shared through press conferences, interviews, media releases and the use of Social Media. To promote an atmosphere of fairness and accountability, media releases are also available to the general public in the News Releases section of our website, and through our Facebook and Twitter accounts.
The hours of the media office are 7:00AM - 4:00PM Monday to Friday. Media inquiries outside of traditional business hours may not receive an immediate response.
Our media officers are sometimes out of the office and emails can sometimes be responded to in a timelier manner by the use of our smartphones. Media emails are not monitored after hours, weekends or holidays. Please direct all email media inquiries to the on duty media officer at:
Media inquiries can be left at 905-688-4111 ext. 5010. This is a dedicated media inquiry hotline. This mail box is accessible to all members of the media relations unit. The on duty media officer will attempt to return the call as soon as practicable.
