The Role of the Integrity Commissioner relating to the Members' Integrity Act, 1994

The primary objective of the Members’ Integrity Act is to prevent ethics violations before they occur.

To this end, the Integrity Commissioner advises provincially elected Members of Provincial Parliament on how the Members' Integrity Act, 1994 affects them in their day to day activities. In addition, the Commissioner reviews the annual financial Disclosure Statements filed by all Members to ensure compliance with the Act.

The Commissioner also has the power to investigate complaints received from one Member regarding the activities of another Member. The procedure for filing a complaint can be found here. The Act does not provide for complaints to be received from the public.
