The Public Servants Disclosure Protection Act came into effect in April 2007. It seeks to encourage public servants to come forward if they have reason to believe that serious wrongdoing has taken place and to provide protection to them against reprisal when they do so. One requirement of this Act is that if wrongdoing is found as a result of a disclosure, the organization must promptly provide public access to certain information. Specifically, it must describe: the wrongdoing, the recommendations made to the chief executive, and the corrective action taken by the organization's chief executive.
In fulfillment of these requirements, this page has been created to report all founded disclosures involving Public Works and Government Services Canada.
