Terms of Use

We will wherever possible aim to:

  • Respond within two (2) business days.
  • Respond directly to the individual that has posed the question via the email (or social application) provided.
  • If the same (or similar) question is received a minimum of ten (10) times over the course of the campaign, we will post the question and answer to BuildingAnswers.ca.
  • Answer general industry and development related questions as they pertain to the geographical region of the GTA (including Simcoe Country but excluding Hamilton – I.E. the territory for which BILD GTA is responsible for).
  • Advise if we are unable to respond to a question because the question falls outside the scope of BILD GTA’s campaign, geographic region, or areas of expertise.
  • Advise if we are unable to respond to a question because a regulatory body (such as the province, a municipality, a conservation authority or other body having jurisdiction) is better suited to respond. In these cases, we will endeavor, where possible, to provide links or contact information to assist with the inquiry.
  • Advise if we are, or anticipate being, unable to meet the two (2) day window due to volume of inquiries, or because the response requires further research.

We will not:

  • Answer questions related to specific companies, construction sites or projects.
  • Answer questions that are outside the scope of BILD GTA’s campaign, geographic region, or areas of expertise.
  • Answer questions outside of normal business hours (Monday to Friday 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM).
  • Answer questions on public holidays or when the office is otherwise closed.
  • Answer questions submitted through channels other than BuildingAnswers.ca or BILD GTA’s social channels.
