How to contact the Prime Minister
The Prime Minister’s Office welcomes all inquiries and can be reached by email, fax, letter and phone. There are online forms that make sharing your thoughts easier as well as the option to write directly to him about any government programs or policies which have had an effect on your life.
The Prime Minister’s Office actively responds to many messages sent from Canadians via social media, trying to answer as many inquiries as possible but often not being able to.
On special occasions such as birthdays, wedding anniversaries or union anniversaries you can request greetings from Prime Minister Trudeau. However, his family requests that gifts should instead be directed toward community or charity projects or family. You can leave messages or leave comments on his official government website as well as Facebook and Twitter pages managed by staff of his office – leaving messages with these administrators will only delay receiving a greeting back!
Emails may be sent directly to the Prime Minister; however, due to his large volume of incoming mail he cannot promise an individual response; rather your query will be directed to an appropriate government department for further review and action.
The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) manages the division of responsibilities between different ministries, organizes policies addressing common issue-areas and ensures their implementation, while supporting him/her with various other endeavors such as organizing committees/meetings/facilitating public engagement.
The Prime Minister and his family receive many gifts in the form of mail and cards from kindhearted Canadians, which is both thoughtful and appreciated by them. While their good deeds may be directed toward charitable organizations or helping those in need across Canada, security regulations and the Federal Accountability Act prohibit accepting gifts such as money or gift certificates – these items will be returned directly back to sender while perishable items may require thorough screening prior to being accepted as gifts by security.
If you need to reach the Prime Minister directly, calling his personal phone number may be the way to do it; however, please keep in mind that you may not receive an answer as they receive many phone calls themselves and cannot respond directly. However, if your question is particularly urgent they may respond directly. If unsure where the number can be found you can search it on government website; also available here will be information regarding other ways of reaching him directly.
Boris Johnson’s contact number has been available online since 2006 when it appeared at the bottom of a press release issued as shadow higher education minister – according to Sky News it still was active this year.
But this revelation raises serious concerns over privacy and communication within Downing Street. According to senior civil servant Simon Case, President Johnson should change his mobile number due to lobbyists and business figures easily being able to contact him via lobbyists; despite Case’s advice he apparently chose not to follow it.
No matter whether or not this number was compromised, it remains alarming that it remained available publicly for so long. While people may want to reach the Prime Minister directly, it should not be possible for them to do so without adequate security processes in place.
CyberNews’ leak checker shows that this number hasn’t appeared on any large-scale data breaches involving politicians or public figures; yet its prolonged exposure suggests there are concerns within Downing Street about his accessibility to messages from members of the public.
Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer recently suggested the Prime Minister must change their number immediately, expressing concerns over those with access to WhatsApp who use the messaging platform to request favors from him. Victoria Atkins from Home Office offered her defence of her colleague by noting she has “complete and utter confidence” that their advisors fully comprehend his national security responsibilities.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is one of the most active state leaders on social media, regularly engaging with citizens via his verified Twitter and Facebook accounts to address grievances or interact with citizens via verified Twitter and Facebook accounts. While he cannot reply personally to every message sent through these channels, his team monitors and responds to many. Furthermore, YouTube channels used by Prime Minister Modi for uploading videos or livestream events provide him an additional outlet allowing followers to follow and tag him in messages sent there – these accounts are public so anyone from around the globe!
