The focus of the Office of the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner is on preventing conflicts of interests by helping public office holders and Members of the House of Commons comply with the Conflict of Interest Act and the Conflict of Interest Code for Members of the House of Commons.
We inform public office holders and Members about what they must do to comply with the regimes, through direct communications and a range of education and outreach activities.
We guide reporting public office holders and Members through the compliance processes.
We provide confidential advice and direction tailored to their individual situations. Public office holders and Members frequently seek advice from our Office about how to arrange their affairs to comply with the Act and the Code, and how to deal with various situations, such as whether they may accept certain gifts.
We provide assistance, as needed, in completing confidential disclosure forms and public declarations.
