        How do I keep up to date?

        Email Aliases

        Westwood's email aliases are the set of email addresses ending in @westwoodunitarian.ca To avoid spam and protect privacy, Westwood is using email addresses that are forwarded to individuals or groups.

        How do I update an alias?

        To set up or change the recipient of a 'Westwood email' with the ending @westwoodunitarian.ca, send the names and email addresses to be added/removed to web@westwoodunitarian.ca. You can ask for confirmation of who the current recipients are on your committee's email address.

        How do aliases work?

        When you are set up with an alias, messages sent to your @westwoodunitarian.ca address will simply be forwarded to your personal email address. The address can forward to one person or a group.
