Ethics Commissioner adopts new communications practice

​The Office of the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner is adopting a new communications practice in the interests of transparency.

Until now, whenever administrative monetary penalties or compliance orders have been issued under the Conflict of Interest Act, we have simply added them to the public registry and to the relevant pages on our website without providing any public notice that we have done so. As a result, the only way you could learn about them in a timely manner was through regular monitoring of our website.

Going forward, we will announce all administrative monetary penalties and compliance orders on Twitter from @CIEC_CCIE as soon as they are made public in our registry. This means you can find out about them immediately.
