The Values and Ethics Code for the Public Sector (VECPS) came into effect in April 2012 as an overarching guide for employees, to help clarify the role and expected behaviours of public servants, and outlines the fundamental values of the public sector of Canada. The VECPS was developed in consultation with public servants, public sector organizations and bargaining agents. The Code applies to the entire public sector, including departments, crown corporations and separate agencies. Based on the VECPS and in accordance with Section 6 of the Public Servants Disclosure Protection Act (PSDPA), Shared Services Canada (SSC) has developed its own Organizational Code (The Code) to provide guidance on ethical behaviour and decision-making in the context of day to day operations at SSC.
