Citizens expect members of Council to meet the highest standards of conduct when carrying out public functions. The standards have been written down in the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act and in the Code of Conduct for Members of Council.

The work of the City of Toronto and, specifically, of Members of Council is complex and often involves multiple competing interests. It is not always easy to know how to act properly and in accordance with the high standards.

The Integrity Commissioner is available to Members of Council to answer questions and provide advice about meeting the standards.

It is a sign of strength for Members of Council to ask questions and seek advice about meeting the high standards of conduct citizens expect.


Members of Council can seek advice by calling or emailing the Integrity Commissioner or her Office as follows:

Municipal Conflict of Interest Act

The Municipal Conflict of Interest Act is a provincial statute that applies to all municipalities in Ontario. It regulates the conduct of Members of Council and local board members as it relates to pecuniary conflicts of interest. The Integrity Commissioner can provide general advice about the Act.
