Key priorities

The Office of the Public Sector Integrity Commissioner of Canada (the Office) plans to achieve these results by focusing on the following priorities for 2024–25:

Timeliness and effectiveness

  • Build an operational capacity to control the significant increase in the number of disclosures of wrongdoing and complaints of reprisal and continue the efforts to support retention of staff by promoting a positive and flexible work environment.
  • Review and update the current intake analysis process in order to increase efficiency.
  • Launch a new case management system and train employees to use it.

Awareness and access to information

  • Participate strategically in events targeted to public servants and stakeholders.
  • Complete a comprehensive redesign of the Office’s website.

Refocusing government spending

In Budget 2023, the government committed to reducing spending by $14.1 billion over the next five years, starting in 2023–24, and by $4.1 billion annually after that.

While not officially part of this spending reduction exercise, the Office will respect the spirit and intent of this exercise by maximizing internal flexibilities. The Office, as a micro-organization with a single mandate, has been operating within its budget since its inception in 2007.
