Ministers' Staff Ethical Conduct
The Integrity Commissioner promotes ethical conduct by answering questions about the application of conflict of interest rules that apply to Ministers’ Staff. The Office determines whether a conflict of interest exists and provides direction. Ministers’ staff may make an inquiry to the Integrity Commissioner regarding their day to day work activities and their personal and/or pecuniary interests while employed by a ministry and during their post employment period.
The Conflict of Interest Rules can be found in O. Reg. 382/07, and in sections 66 to 69 of the Public Service of Ontario Act, 2006. The Act appoints the Integrity Commissioner as the Ethics Executive for people in this group. Sections 94 to 98 of the Act, Part V- Political Activity, provide for the political activity rules for public servants who work in Ministers’ offices.
The Office provides training for all staff. To book a session, please call us at 416-314-8983 or email at email@example.com
