IOG Policy Brief No. 23: Public Service Ethics in the New Millennium: The Evolving Canadian System
This paper provides an introduction to the new and diverse system of public service codes in Canada, and derives six underlying principles from the system. The principles are universal and could be applied to entire ethics programs both in Canada and abroad. The brief also explores the emerging challenge of maintaining coherence in the system overall, and poses timely questions regarding the future development of the Canadian ethics code system.
