Working with Others

The Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner works with counterparts across Canada and around the world, exchanging information about conflict of interest rules and practices and discussing related issues to ensure the Office remains abreast of issues and developments in the field.

  • We coordinate information-gathering for the Canadian Conflict of Interest Network (CCOIN), which is made up of federal, provincial and territorial conflict of interest commissioners.

  • Our Office is a member of the Council on Governmental Ethics Laws (COGEL), a U.S.-based international not-for-profit organization of government ethics practitioners.

We also act as an information resource for other countries and international organizations, by meeting with delegations, responding to inquiries and participating in conferences related to conflict of interest and ethics.
