Reporting Misconduct

Disclosure of Misconduct

Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) is committed to maintaining high ethical standards and ensuring that our actions and behaviours are compliant with our policies and procedures.

TRCA’s Disclosure of Misconduct policy establishes a process that enables members of the public and external stakeholders to report allegations of misconduct.

Some examples of misconduct include:

  • Actual or perceived acts of fraud;
  • Financial, accounting and/or auditing matters;
  • Violations of federal or provincial laws;
  • Unethical business conduct, including violations of the Code of Conduct and other TRCA policies and procedures;
  • Misuse of authority;
  • Misuse of company resources;
  • Danger to health or safety of TRCA employees and/or general public; and
  • Intentional damage to property and theft.

Specific guidelines for TRCA employees reporting of actual or perceived misconduct are discussed in HR-4.02-P Whistleblower Program Policy.

Reporting Misconduct

In order to file a complaint related to actual or perceived misconduct, you will be asked to provide the following:

  • Contact information

All complaints are treated with confidentiality to the extent permitted by law and subject to TRCA’s need to fully investigate the matter, and will be shielded from any form of reprisal or retaliation. If TRCA discovers criminal or otherwise improper activity, it will report such activity to the appropriate government or law enforcement authorities.
