Ethics and Integrity Commissioner

The position of Ethics and Integrity Commissioner was created by Executive Council in 2015 as part of a series of measures to maintain and strengthen public confidence that the work of government is conducted with high standards of ethics and integrity.

Initially, the primary area of responsibility for the commissioner was conflict of interest disclosure for deputy ministers and senior officials in similar positions. In the fall of 2015, the commissioner’s mandate was expanded to include a key role in the newly-developed Public Interest Disclosure and Whistleblower Protection Policy. Administratively, the office is associated with the Public Service Commission.
