Most municipalities have a code of conduct established

The vast majority of municipalities in Newfoundland and Labrador now have a code of conduct established.

In total 97 percent of municipalities, or 262, have implemented a code of conduct. The codes are meant to strengthen municipal governance and contribute to the successful day-to-day operations of a community.

The Municipal Conduct Act came into effect in September of last year. It required councils to establish their own codes of conduct to address issues such as conflict of interest and bullying and harassment in the workplace.

The Department of Municipal and Provincial Affairs will support communities that have yet to establish codes of conduct and continues to aim for 100 percent compliance.
