This enactment promotes the public interest by establishing a regime for dealing with wrongdoing in the Public Service of Canada. The regime will be centred in the Public Service Commission, under the direction of a commissioner to be designated the Public Interest Commissioner.
Under the regime, employees will be able to give notice of wrongful acts or omissions. The Commissioner will be able to investigate and report allegations of wrongful acts or omissions and see that actual wrongdoing is dealt with. Ministers of the Crown will be able to learn of wrongdoing from the Commissioner, and will be expected to deal with it.
The Public Interest Commissioner will ensure a positive environment for the regime by providing for education on ethical practices in the workplace and on the rights and responsibilities of employees under this Act with respect to wrongdoing in the Public Service.
