Department Emails

Email Advisory: While email is a standard communication delivery service, it is not verifiable. If a sender has not heard back from a staff member or Councillor within two to three days (see Service Standards Policy), they should re-send their email and request acknowledgement of receipt. Emergency emails (defined as a health and safety situation in the workplace or failure to be paid by an engager) should be identified as such in the Subject. Due to necessary staffing reductions during the COVID-19 pandemic, the typical acknowledgement period is extended to four days, not including any Friday (not including emergencies). Please make sure to read any out-of-office or other response messages for specific contact instructions.

Equity is not responsible for emails lost because of technical issues (e.g. email service blacklisting, SPAM or filter blocking) preventing delivery to the intended recipient. 

Formal correspondence requiring an original signature or proof of delivery should be sent to Equity by registered mail or courier (signature required). However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Equity's 'physical' offices are closed until further notice. Please make unique delivery arrangements with the intended staff recipient for any communications requiring proof of delivery.
