The Human Resources Management and Ethical Framework for Members’ Staff is a consolidated framework that sets out the roles and responsibilities of Members of Council for managing the City employees under their authority, and affirms applicable City Human Resources policy requirements for Members’ staff.

The framework also sets out the ethical framework for Members’ staff and clarifies their responsibility under the existing Code of Conduct for Members of Council. As Members’ staff are not members of the public service, the policy provides clarity to the distinct roles that Members and their staff play in the effective functioning of Toronto’s government.
