This portal aims to present in clear language the diverse protections available across Canada to whistleblowers, in other words the individuals making public interest disclosures about wrongdoings. You can learn more about the scope and purpose of this portal in the About page.
It should be noted that the website only includes provisions regarding the voluntary disclosures of wrongdoing that involve a public interest dimension with such wrongdoings normally constituting unethical practices or legal breaches and may be disclosed internally or externally. Protection for informants, individuals subject to legal duties to inform, and labour relation framework for personal complaints and grievances have been purposely omitted.
In any case, anyone requiring or seeking legal advice or help should retain the services of a competent professional. The content available on this website is intended for informational purposes only, with no intent to provide any legal or professional advice.
We are still finalizing details based on stakeholders feedback. If you feel like something is missing, please reach out through the suggestion form!
