Codes of Conduct
The Ontario Securities Commission is committed to the highest standards of ethical conduct in all of its activities. The Chief Adjudicator, Adjudicators and all employees are expected to comply with the Ontario Securities Commission Code of Conduct and related policies. In addition, the Chief Adjudicator, Adjudicators and staff of the Governance & Tribunal Secretariat who support the Capital Markets Tribunal are also expected to comply with the Capital Markets Tribunal Code of Conduct.
As representatives of a Crown corporation, the Chief Adjudicator, Adjudicators and Commission employees are also subject to certain requirements of the Public Service of Ontario Act (PSOA), including those governing ethical conduct and political activity. The conflict of interest rules in the Ontario Securities Commission Code of Conduct adhere to the requirements applicable to public servants and former public servants under the PSOA.
