Prior to 2013, the City's Communications Department periodically distributed an e-newsletter, Stay Connected. In October 2014, Marketing & Communications staff finalized an improved e-news strategy that:

  • best incorporates initiatives to enhance communications and expand community engagement
  • leverages current departmental processes to ensure reliable and consistent distribution of information, while maximizing efficiencies
  • ensures strict compliance with the new (July 2014) Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL)
