Code of Ethics

Procurement Services follow the Code of Ethics as outlined by the Ontario Public Buyer’s Association (OPBA)

Supplier Code of Conduct

To become a Vendor, or continue as a Vendor to the Town, it is a condition that the Supplier Code of Conduct is acknowledged, accepted and compliance to the SCC is enforced within each organization.

The SCC is designed to ensure that the Town’s suppliers, consultants, contractors, sub-contractors and business partners enforce safe working conditions, their employees are treated with respect and dignity and that their manufacturing processes are environmentally responsible.

The SCC is based on internationally accepted labour standards including the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) core conventions and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  Failure to comply with this SCC will be sufficient cause for The Town to elect to revoke a Suppliers approved status.

The provisions of this Code are in addition to, and not in lieu of, the provisions of any legal agreement or contract between a Supplier and the Town.  We expect our Suppliers to hold their supply chain, including but not limited to subcontractors and third party labour agencies, to the same standards contained in this SCC. This SCC does not create any third-party beneficiary rights or benefits for suppliers, subcontractors, their respective employees or any other party.
