The practice of soliciting, giving, and receiving donations, prizes, contributions, gifts, hospitality, and/or other benefits dates back centuries and is deeply rooted in human behaviour. The fact that gifts, hospitality, and/or other benefits are offered to produce friendly relations means that employees must be particularly mindful of possible conflict of interest situations and potential repercussions, due to SSC’s mandate and visibility. Employees must also pay particular attention to solicitation activities related to fundraising. The onus is on the SSC employee to understand the expected behaviour in these situations.

Contractors must post a copy of the labour conditions prominently in the workplace, and keep records that demonstrate these conditions are being met, should they be requested by a Labour Program inspector.

The values and expected behaviours outlined in SSC's Organizational Code are intended to promote ethical decision-making and behaviour, and guide employees in the performance of their duties.
