Ethics & Compliance

Code of Ethics

The District Council is committed to establishing an organization-wide culture that values and expects the highest level of personal integrity and ethical conduct from each of its employees, representatives and elected officers. The Compliance Program adopted by the District Council has been designed to meet this goal and consists of four fundamental elements:

  • Policies, procedures and rules that establish behavioral and performance expectations;
  • Training to ensure that all officers, employees and representatives understand the rules and level of conduct required of them;
  • Avenues to report concerns and seek guidance; and
  • Full and fair investigations and disciplinary procedures.

A Code of Ethics been adopted to help guide District Council officers, employees, and representatives in their day-to-day decision making and conduct. The Code reinforces the District Council’s absolute commitment to establishing and embedding a culture that values and expects integrity and ethical conduct from all of its representatives and from every individual and organization with whom the District Council conducts business. Links to the Code of Ethics and other important rules, policies and procedures of the District Council can be found on this website.

Without exception, all District Council officers, employees and representatives are required to follow the rules, to act ethically, and to remember that all of their actions must be for the benefit of the District Council and its members.
