Disclosure of Information on Founded Wrongdoing

The Public Servants Disclosure Protection Act (PSDPA), which came into force on April 15, 2007, following the passing of the Federal Accountability Act in December 2006, requires all federal departments to make an internal disclosure process available to their staff for reporting allegations of wrongdoing.

The PSDPA offers federal public sector employees and other persons a secure and confidential process for the disclosure of serious wrongdoing in the workplace, as well as protection against reprisal.

The PSDPA defines wrongdoing as follows:

  • a contravention of any Act of Parliament or of the legislature of a province, or of any regulations made under any such Act;
  • a misuse of public funds or a public asset;
  • a gross mismanagement;
  • a serious breach of a code of conduct;
  • an act or omission that creates a substantial and specific danger to the life, health or safety of persons, or to the environment;
  • knowingly directing or counselling a person to commit a wrongdoing.

Under paragraph 11(c) of the PSDPA, chief executives shall promptly provide public access to information on founded wrongdoing.

Information to which public access is provided must describe: the wrongdoing, including the identity of the person found to have committed it if necessary in order to describe the wrongdoing adequately; the recommendations, if any, set out in any report made to the chief executive; and any corrective action taken by the chief executive or the reasons why no corrective action was taken.

This web site will be updated regularly to provide public access to information on founded cases of wrongdoing, investigated in accordance with the PSDPA.
