We're in the process of making our site conform to a new set of security standards requested by Google. This is a large undertaking and we're in the process of converting all of our pages. Please be assured, the pages where we ask for your information, such as cbc.ca commenting, watch.cbc.ca or cbchelp.cbc.ca, have been secured.
When you go to a site that uses HTTPS (connection security), the website's server uses a certificate to prove the website's identity to browsers, like Chrome - and a green, locked key is displayed in your browser URL bar. A grey or yellow i icon indicates that the website has not provided the browser with a certificate. This is normal for regular HTTP sites.
In the meantime, we are in the process of securing all remaining web platforms, feeds and native apps. As you can imagine, this is a big task, given the huge volume of content, and numerous legacy platforms CBC supports. We expect to have this process completed by the middle of 2018, in the meantime, you can continue to have confidence that cbc.ca is doing everything it can to protect your privacy.
