August 2006: Revisions to Communications Policy

News Release and Backgrounder

  • include a new definition of advertising to distinguish it from non-paid messages such as public service announcements and from collateral services such as public relations and events management; and
  • require departments to provide written public opinion research reports and to make them available to the public through the Library of Parliament and Library and Archives Canada within six months of the completion of fieldwork.
