Ottawa – The Senate of Canada has banned the mobile application TikTok on all Senate-managed devices.

The decision was taken today by the Steering Committee of the Standing Committee on Internal Economy, Budgets and Administration (CIBA).

Senate staff members and senators have been advised to remove the application from their Senate devices.

Senate users must uninstall the TikTok application from their Senate devices by 6 p.m. ET, March 2, 2023. After this time, any user with a Senate device that continues to have the TikTok application installed will be contacted by the Information Services Directorate to assist with the removal of the application.

The Senate’s decision to remove access to the application on its devices follows consultations with national security partners and is aligned with actions taken by other jurisdictions and parliamentary partners.
