The Conflict of Interest Code for Members of the House of Commons applies to all 338 elected Members of Parliament. It sets out certain obligations and prohibits certain activities that involve conflicts between private and public interests or have the potential to do so.
To help Members comply with the Code, the Commissioner issues advisory opinions that inform them about matters related to the Code. Advisory opinions set forth the Commissioner's interpretation of its provisions as they apply to specific cases. Authority to publish opinions for the guidance of Members is provided in subsection 26(4) of the Code.
