Transitional Period

Federal departments are moving their web content to Canada.ca. As a part of that process, proactive disclosure reports will become available through the Open Government portal.  During this transition, if a proactive disclosure report from a specific department is not yet available on the Open Government portal please refer to Proactive disclosure by department or agency where a copy can be found.  For any questions on this issue, please contact us at open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca.

Search Government Acts of Founded Wrongdoing

The Public Servants Disclosure Protection Act (PSDPA) offers federal public sector employees and other persons a secure and confidential process for the disclosure of serious wrongdoing in the workplace, as well as protection against reprisal.

The PSDPA defines wrongdoing as follows:

  • a contravention of any Act of Parliament or of the legislature of a province, or of any regulations made under any such Act;
  • a misuse of public funds or a public asset;
  • a gross mismanagement;
  • a serious breach of a code of conduct;
  • an act or omission that creates a substantial and specific danger to the life, health or safety of persons, or to the environment;
  • knowingly directing or counselling a person to commit a wrongdoing.

Under paragraph 1(c) of the PSDPA, chief executives shall promptly provide public access to information on founded wrongdoing.

Information to which public access is provided must describe: the wrongdoing, including the identity of the person found to have committed it if necessary in order to describe the wrongdoing adequately; the recommendations, if any, set out in any report made to the chief executive; and any corrective action taken by the chief executive or the reasons why no corrective action was taken.
