From the Court:
OTTAWA – The Supreme Court of Canada is pleased to announce the launch of its English and French Twitter accounts. Tweets will pertain to the business of the Court and will be posted on both accounts simultaneously.
The launch of these Twitter accounts in 2016 coincides with an important milestone in the Court’s history: it is the 140th anniversary of the first hearings held by the Supreme Court of Canada.
Chief Justice McLachlin commends the Court’s presence on Twitter: “Communicating on Twitter forms part of the Court’s commitment to open and accessible justice. Sharing information about the Court’s work is crucial to its mandate, and Twitter is a useful tool in achieving this objective.”
