Mary Dawson

In the face of scandals, investigations and occasional bad behaviour, public trust in elected officials and public institutions continues to decline in Canada and around the world. The notion of ethical governance appears to be going out of style. Or is it?

In this one-day workshop, Canada’s current Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner will present her perspectives on the matter based on her first-hand experience.

Are today’s public officials less ethical than in the past? What can we do to ensure the highest standard of ethical governance? Do Officers of Parliament have sufficient resources and capabilities to enforce an acceptable and ethical standard?

This is a timely workshop and it touches on a critical topic.
