BRAMPTON - The City of Brampton has stepped ahead of the curve, being one of the few Ontario municipalities to retain an Integrity Commissioner. ADR Chambers will serve in this role for a one-year period. ADR Chambers will act as a key advisor to Council on a range of important issues by providing education and advice to Council Members. The Office of the Integrity Commissioner will also preside over complaints investigations and perform functions related to the application of the Council Code of Conduct, and City legislation, rules, procedures and policies governing the ethical behaviour of the Mayor and Councillors.
The Office of the Integrity Commissioner will only pursue questions and complaints relating to Council Members. A Public Complaints Process is in place for complaints on alleged City of Brampton staff misconduct. Details on both the Office of the Integrity Commissioner and the Public Complaints Process can be found online at www.brampton.ca.
The Office of the Integrity Commissioner operates independently of City Council and City staff.
