Moderation Policy  


We welcome public engagement with our articles and social media posts. We also encourage readers to familiarize themselves with our guiding principles before taking the time to interact with our content. 

ALUS Canada’s moderation policy outlines our values and our reasoning for removal or restriction of social media users and their content. We reserve the right to remove, hide or unpublish without notification on our websites or social media pages, when our communication team feels that posts, profiles or comments breach our Moderation and Privacy Guidelines.   

ALUS is innovative, authentic, reputable, productive, engaged, caring and inclusive. Our program is based on 8 Guiding Principles that are at the heart of everything we do and every decision we make. Therefore, any post or comment posted on any of our platforms that does not respect our values, or our guiding principles may be removed, hidden or unpublished
