Passwords must follow these guidelines:

  • Must contain at least two alphabetical characters (A-Z, a-z) in the first eight characters
  • Passwords may contain only the following special characters: ! _ - { } [ ] / . ?
  • Passwords may not contain any blank spaces
  • Passwords are case-sensitive
  • You should not use anything that is personally identifiable. Do not use names or words, birth dates, etc.

Creating Strong Passwords

We strongly advise the use of a "pass-phrase." To create one, put together the first characters of words in a phrase you can easily remember. You can also include punctuation.

Examples of a passphrase (do not use these examples):

My address is 1234 Main Street Quebec Canada = Mai1MSQC
Only 32 more weeks until vacation time! = O3mwuvt!
