Publication of guidelines for political staff regarding multiple functions

December 16th 2021 - The Ethics Commissioner (the “Commissioner”) issues guidelines for staff of Members and House Officers of the National Assembly regarding multiple functions.

The rules applicable to Member staff do not specifically address multiple functions. However, members of the political staff must respect certain specific rules relating to conflicts of interest, attendance and the use of State goods and services.

To accompany these guidelines, the Commissioner granted an episode of its podcast les Notes de bas de page to multiple functions occupied by Member staff. Commissioner Ariane Mignolet discusses the main elements to be taken into consideration in such circumstances with two lawyers for the prevention sector, Me Nathalie Lachance and Me François Corriveau.

Members of the political staff are invited to contact the Commissioner for any questions relating to their situation.
