Starting March 2019, the Province of Ontario has required that municipalities adopt a Code of conduct for members of their municipal council and local boards.

The Municipal Council adopted its first version of the Code of conduct in February 2019 and updated it slightly in May 2019.

The Code of conduct applies to members of the Municipal Council and to the following local board members:

  • • BIA (Downtown Business Improvement Area Commission)
  • • Committee of Adjustment

To consult the Code of conduct


Integrity Commissioner

By adopting this Code, an Integrity Commissioner was appointed in January 2021 by the Council. His term ends on December 31, 2022.

His role

The Integrity Commissioner is a person independent of the Council and the Town Administration. He acts as:

Advice

He provides confidential advice to the mayor, councillors and local board members on their obligations under the Code of conduct and any other regulations, policies and procedures governing their ethical behavior. He also provides notices under the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act.

Investigator

He is responsible for investigating complaints he receives about potential breaches of the Code of conduct or ethical failings of members of the Municipal Council or a local board.

Educator

He provides educational information to Members of Council, local boards, the Town and the general public.

Who is he?

Mr. Jean-Jacques LaCombe is a retired lawyer who was in private practice for thirty (30) years. He was also a private and court­-appointed mediator and a local counsel for the Office of the Attorney General of Ontario for more than 25 years.
