The Office’s social media accounts are public and not hosted on the Office’s servers. Users who choose to interact with us via social media should refer to the terms of service and privacy policies of the social media service providers and those of any apps used to access them.

Following and unfollowing 

Following – The Office of the Provincial Auditor may “follow”, “favourite” or “subscribe” to other social media accounts that are relevant to the work of our Office.
