Code of Conduct

Provincial legislation requires that municipalities establish a code of conduct for members of the Council and certain local boards

The Code of Conduct is overseen by the City's appointed independent Integrity Commissioner, Guy Giorno, who is responsible to:

  • provide information and direction to Committee and Council members on the Code 
  • coordinate education and procedural training on the policies, Code and Municipal Conflict of Interest Act to Council, staff, and members of the community
  • conduct investigations and provide reports on alleged breaches of the Code
  • provide annual reports to Council on any requests of the Integrity Commissioner

Any person who has reasonable grounds to believe that a Member has breached a provision of the Code may file a complaint with Guy Giorno, the City’s Integrity Commissioner directly as follows:

You may file your Code of Conduct Complaint by completing the Application for Inquiry Form. Once you press submit, the information you entered on the page is sent to the Integrity Commissioner (Guy Giorno) directly and no data is stored by the City.
