Values and ethics
NRC and its employees are committed to serving Canada and pursuing excellence in research and innovation by meeting the highest standards for ethics and integrity. This commitment is founded upon the NRC Vision and Values.
To this end, NRC has established a portfolio of policies and procedures to support ethical decisions and to promote accountability in accordance with relevant legislation and policies as prescribed by the Government of Canada. The following list presents policies and processes managed by the NRC Secretary General’s Office (NRC-SGO).
Those seeking general information on differences between complaint mechanisms should begin by consulting the Distinguishing the NRC Processes Relating to Values and Ethics Matters document, following which they should have situation-specific conversations with the most relevant process owners to determine what mechanism might be most appropriate.
