I am excited to inform you that our office (the Office of the Conflict of Interest Commissioner) will be joining forces with the Office of the Integrity Commissioner to be a single entity. The Office will have responsibility for overseeing ethics for public servants and elected officials working for the Province of Ontario.
This change was included in the recent Restoring Trust, Transparency and Accountability Act, 2018 that received Royal Assent on December 6, 2018. In the coming months, we will be working with our colleagues in the Integrity Commissioner’s Office to make the transition as smooth as possible.
For information about the Office of the Integrity Commissioner and his message about the merger, please visit that Officer’s website here http://www.oico.on.ca/
