Disclosure of Information on Founded Wrongdoing

The Public Servants Disclosure Protection Act (PSDPA) offers federal public sector employees and other persons a secure and confidential process for the disclosure of serious wrongdoing in the workplace, as well as protection against reprisal.

The PSDPA defines wrongdoing as follows:

Under paragraph 1(c) of the PSDPA, chief executives shall promptly provide public access to information on founded wrongdoing.

Information to which public access is provided must describe: the wrongdoing, including the identity of the person found to have committed it if necessary in order to describe the wrongdoing adequately; the recommendations, if any, set out in any report made to the chief executive; and any corrective action taken by the chief executive or the reasons why no corrective action was taken.

This Internet site will be updated quarterly in order to provide public access to information on wrongdoing found by an investigation under the PSDPA to have been committed.
