Municipal Conflict of Interest Act Decisions

Following an investigation of a non-Municipal Conflict of Interest Act (MCIA) Code of Contact complaint, the Integrity Commissioner reports to Council on whether, in her opinion, there has been a violation of the Code, outlining the findings, the terms of any settlement, or recommended penalty and/or corrective action. Where the complaint is not sustained, the Integrity Commission reports the result of the investigation to Council.


With reference to reporting on MCIA Code investigations, the Integrity Commissioner will complete her investigation into alleged contraventions of sections 5, 5.1 or 5.2 of the MCIA. If, upon completion of the investigation, the Integrity Commissioner determines that on a balance of probabilities there has been a violation of the MCIA, or is otherwise of the opinion that it is in the City’s interest for a judge to determine if there has been a violation of the MCIA, the Integrity Commissioner may apply to a judge for a determination.


Upon completion of the MCIA complaint investigation, the Integrity Commissioner will publish written reasons for her decision within 90 days of the decision.
