Whistleblowing Canada's Spring Webinar Series Over. To Resume Again in the Fall.
This first Webinar series has been recorded and there are videos of each on our Home page. There is also Resource material available under the "Activities" button - "Webinar Resources".
These presentations and discussions are aimed at increasing awareness and understanding of how encouraging whistleblowers or truth-tellers can help our organizations and governments prevent harm and work better to the benefit of everyone – organizations and citizens alike.

UPCOMING CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT. Good news for Whistleblowing Canada and all those interested in improving the practice of whistleblowing in our country! In collaboration with Professor Paloma Raggo at the School of Public Policy and Administration at Carleton University, we have been awarded a grant by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) to help fund a public conference on whistleblowing.
The conference will bring together for the first time since the implementation of the Federal Public Servant Disclosure Protection Act in 2007, Canadian and international researchers, legal practitioners, whistleblowers, civil society groups, and policymakers to tackle the many issues in the whistleblowing field in Canada today. The goal of the conference is to promote the dissemination of ideas and engage with society at large. The conference will be open to members of the general public.
We are assessing whether the event will be face-to-face or virtual possibly in the Fall 2021 or Winter 2022. Check this page for further announcements, or Signup for Updates to keep informed.
