Report on a matter referred by the Public Sector Integrity Commissioner

​Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion has reported on a matter referred to him by the Public Sector Integrity Commissioner. 

The referral concerned allegations of conflict of interest against a public officer holder. At the time of the disclosure, the individual held an executive position with a federal agency and had previously held public office with a different federal agency. 

According to the allegations, the subject of the allegations used their public office to further their private interests or to improperly further the interests of a private company in which they had private interests. They were able to confirm, with supporting documentation, that they had no private interests in the company, and that they did not use their public office to improperly further its interests. 

In light of the information gathered, Commissioner Dion had no reason to believe that the subject may have contravened the Conflict of Interest Act. He therefore did not initiate an examination under section 45 of the Act and considers this matter closed.
