Municipal Code of Conduct Consultation

Published on April 19, 2021

This government has been absolutely clear that we will not tolerate workplace harassment or discrimination of any kind. That’s why, with the support of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario, Ontario is consulting the municipal sector and the public on how to strengthen accountability for council members.


We want to ensure that councillors and heads of council maintain a safe and respectful workplace and carry out their duties as elected officials ethically and responsibly. It's critical that everyone feels safe and respected in the workplace, and that they know there are accountability measures in place for members who violate codes of conduct.


These consultations with the municipal sector will help the province determine what, if any, changes are required to ensure everyone can feel safe and respected in the workplace.Additonally, Jill Dunlop, the Associate Minister of Children and Women's Issues will be leading roundtables to hear from members of council, municipal associations as well as municipal staff.


All members of the public are invited to provide input online at until July 15, 2021.
