Ontario’s Office of the Integrity Commissioner was established in 1988 to maintain high standards of ethical conduct in the Ontario Public Service. It is independent of government, striving to encourage and sustain a culture of integrity and accountability.
The Office has five key areas of responsibility:
-Ministers’ Staff Ethical Conduct
-Ontario Public Service Disclosure of Wrongdoing
The Office has prepared new resources for MPPs and Ministers' staff about the gift rules they must follow, as well as the acceptability of lobbyists offering gifts to public office holders.
