Wikis tend to self-monitor, so inappropriate content is often removed or corrected very quickly by other users. The Treasury Board Secretariat, which runs the GCwiki, can delete inappropriate content within 24 hours.


All content is attributable as all entries are automatically date and time stamped with the contributor’s valid e-mail address. Wiki users who come across inappropriate content are encouraged to contact the GCTools help desk by submitting a ticket (please include the link to the page containing the inappropriate content and the details of the issue).


If necessary, the GCwiki administrators can remove the inappropriate content and suspend a user’s account.


What is inappropriate content? 


  • Content promoting hate based on race, religion, disability, sexual preference, etc.
  • Content promoting violent extremism.
  • Sexually explicit content.
  • Real or simulated violence.
  • Content advocating unsafe behaviour.
