A written Code of Conduct helps to ensure that the Members of Council and Members of Local Boards share a common basis for acceptable conduct. These standards are designed to provide a reference guide and a supplement to the legislative parameters within which the members must operate. These standards should serve to enhance public confidence that Township’s elected representatives operate from a base of integrity, justice and courtesy.
The Municipal Act requires Council to appoint an Integrity Commissioner who administers the Code of Conduct for members of Council and members appointed to Boards and Committees. The Integrity Commissioner also provides guidance to members on compliance with the Code of Conduct and compliance with the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act.
A copy of the Code of Conduct for Members of Council and Local Boards can be found here.
How to File a Complaint: If you believe that a member of Council has breached the Code of Conduct, you may request an investigation by the Integrity Commissioner. The form (which is only supported by Internet Explorer browser) can be found here.
