The Ombudsman’s Role faced with ethical issues related to multiculturalism – Free 1/2 Day Conference • Ottawa

On Tuesday, November 19, members of the public are invited to attend a free, half-day conference to explore how ombudsmen address workplace ethical issues related to multiculturalism.

While ombudsmen often appear in the news, their exact role may be somewhat of a mystery to the average Canadian. This conference, hosted by Saint Paul University’s Research Centre in Public Ethics and Governance (RCiPEG), strives to clarify the role by featuring two public service ombudsmen.

“This event is an excellent opportunity for members of the public to see concrete examples of how ombudsmen really work, and to ask them questions” explains Julie Paquette, Co-director of RCiPEG. “The event also allows students to make tangible connections between what they’re learning in class and how it is applied in the public service.”
