Disclosure and Accountability

Visitors

City Council is the governing body of The City of Calgary and the custodian of its powers, both legislative and administrative. The proper operation of democratic municipal government requires that elected officials be independent, impartial and duly responsible to the public.

The Ethical Conduct Policy for Members of Council and the Gifts and Benefits Policy for Members of Council establish and promote ethical conduct standards for Members of Council in the following areas:

The Ethical Conduct Policy outlines standards for Members of Council's interactions with the public, City employees, contractors, Council staff and all Members of Council. As part of this policy, Members of Council are expected to disclose a quarterly list of external visitors (excluding Media), with whom they, or their assistants, have met in their offices.

Expenses

 
Outlined in the Ethical Conduct Policy for Members of Council is the responsibility of the Councillors to the public to be accountable for the management of their annual ward office budgets and transparent in reporting how their budgets are spent.  In accordance with council direction, the Office of the Councillors posts Ward Expense Reports quarterly.

Gifts and Benefits

 

To achieve democratic accountability and transparency, it is necessary that no individual or organization influence, or perceive to influence, Council activities in exchange for gifts and benefits. The Gifts and Benefits Policy for Members of Council provides them with a clear process to report these gifts and benefits that it is common for them to receive in acting out their duties of office. Gifts are required to be reported semi-annually in June and December.
