Starting in the week of April 13, 2020, Teams will be implemented across government in a phased approach (ministry by ministry). This phased approach will take place rapidly to support the volume of people working remotely at this time.
Teams is an ideal environment for online collaboration with audio, video, chat, and file sharing capabilities. Teams is not replacing Skype for Business, or Web Ex.
Teams offers full videoconferencing capabilities on any internet-connected device with a camera, meaning it can be used on mobile devices anytime, anywhere.

Prompted to enter a code?
Multi-factor authentication prompts you to submit a code that has been sent to one of your devices, confirming your identity for greater security of yours and government's data.
You will need to register for multi-factor authentication if you have not done it already, and you intend to use Office 365 software (such as OneDrive and Exchange Email Online) on any of the following:
- a personal mobile device app or browser;
- a government mobile device app or browser;
- a government device not connected to the government network; or
- a non-government device.
You may have already registered for multi-factor authentication when Exchange Online launched in your ministry. If not, you can follow these instructions to register for multi-factor authentication.
