The public expects the highest standards of conduct from citizen members who are appointed to local boards by Council to act on its behalf. The standards are set out in the Code of Conduct for Members of Local Boards (Restricted Definition) and the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act.
The Integrity Commissioner is available to members of Local Boards (Restricted Definition) to answer questions and provide advice about meeting the standards.
