This is my fifth annual report as Integrity Commissioner. I am preparing this report at a time when Ontario and the rest of the world are dealing with the health emergency brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the middle of March, my staff and I have been dealing with all seven of the Office’s mandates by working remotely, and we will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. The volume of matters coming to the Office has remained steady, and our capacity to provide timely advice to all stakeholders and perform the necessary tasks of each mandate has not been appreciably diminished by this crisis.
I am very proud of my staff, who have nimbly adapted to this new reality. They are working through conference calls and email while ensuring that the confidential nature of so much of our work is respected and maintained. I could not be more pleased with how they have risen to the challenge.
The Honourable J. David Wake
