What was this engagement about? 

As public servants and Yukoners, we are committed to maintaining high ethical standards as we work to deliver important programs and services. We believe an honest, open, and accountable public service is the cornerstone of a healthy civil society.

The Public Interest Disclosure of Wrongdoing Act provides a process for public employees to follow if they believe a wrongdoing has been committed or is about to be committed, or if they believe they have been unfairly treated in the process of raising concerns about a wrongdoing.

The Act is intended to deal with significant and serious matters that a public employee believes may be unlawful, dangerous to the public or injurious to the public interest. This act is not intended to deal with routine operational matters, individual grievances, or workplace conflicts.

The Public Service Commission is seeking input from the public to help determine if the Act could be improved or if it could be expanded to include other workplaces.

Public entities that the Act applies to are:

  • Government of Yukon departments, directorates, secretariats, or other similar executive agencies;
  • Workers’ Safety and Compensation Board, Yukon Development Corporation, Yukon Energy Corporation, Yukon Hospital Corporation, Yukon Housing Corporation, and Yukon Liquor Corporation; and
  • other specified public entities, which are Yukon University, the Legislative Assembly Office, Office of the Child and Youth Advocate, and Office of the Chief Electoral Officer.
How will my input make a difference? 

Your thoughts, concerns and ideas will help us ensure that the Act is up to date and if there could be any improvements.
