Enforcement officers, inspectors, investigators, and all those who support them work hard to keep Canadians safe and uphold regulatory standards. Sometimes the end result is a criminal court conviction which becomes public domain. Each department and agency should publish a notification online for all convictions obtained in court. This can include a description of the offence, what the penalty was, and that the issue was corrected. This would allow the government's enforcement activities to be more transparent and let the public know what is being done. This open approach has not been adopted in every department despite court records generally being public.
