Code of Conduct 2019

Effective July 1, 2019

In December 2018, the Conflicts of Interest Act came into effect. This legislation applies to all public post-secondary institutions in Alberta and mandates that existing codes of conduct be revised to align with the new standards set out by the Act. The new code of conduct that we are being asked to implement will affect employees of MacEwan, as well as the Board of Governors.
