April 2016 Webinar

“Charbonneau Commission Followup: Ethics Lessons for Quebec and Elsewhere”

See PPT slides here: Charbonneau Webinar April 2016 FINAL

The Charbonneau Commission spent four years looking into possible collusion and corruption in contracting and management of public contracts in Québec’s construction industry.  The Commission’s Report recommends better monitoring of public sector contracting, better support and protection of whistleblowers, and more internal expertise in organizations giving public contracts, such as the Transport Ministry; they also address the financing of political parties, ethical training for professionals, and the accountability of professional bodies.

Our speaker was Diane Girard, former director of EPAC and founder of RÉOQ, the Québec Organizational Ethics Network. Diane has been doing ethics training and consulting since 1997. She also teaches ethics at McGill University’s Desautels Faculty of Management.

“This was a high-quality webinar on the Charbonneau Commission. Good moderation. Interesting and topical content. Well-designed slides. Flawless interface that made audience participation easy”.  – James De Monte, Office of the Conflict of Interest Commissioner of Ontario

« Un gros merci à toute l’équipe qui a organisé le webinaire hier. J’ai vraiment aimé ce format. P.S. Je suis contente de vivre dans une province où les vilains ont plus de chance d’être arrêtés! »  – Monique Boivin, Gatineau (QC)
