Chief, Professional Conduct and Culture

What we do

The Chief, Professional Conduct and Culture will lead a fundamental transformation in the way systemic misconduct is understood and addressed in the Department of National Defence (DND) and the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF).

The term systemic misconduct includes sexual misconduct, hateful conduct, systemic barriers, harassment, violence, discrimination, employment inequity, unconscious biases, and abuse of power in the workplace.

Specific tasks

The Chief, Professional Conduct and Culture team is developing a framework to:

  • realign policies, programs and responsibilities that address misconduct across DND and the CAF
  • improve the ways systemic misconduct is reported, tracked and addressed, both within and outside of the chain of command
  • give greater agency and support to those who have experienced misconduct and those affected by it
  • examine the ways systemic misconduct affects and is affected by intersectionality, reprisals, member satisfaction, and retention
