Ethics scenarios: What would you do?

The following ethical scenarios have been developed by the Defence Ethics Programme for use in ethical discussions across the Defence Team. Each scenario is accompanied by a commentary, which can be used to help further understand ethical dilemmas, possible solutions and application of the DND and CF Code of Values and Ethics, among others.

Suggestions for scenarios and comments are always welcome and can be sent via email at Ethics-Ethique@forces.gc.ca. Scenarios and commentaries will be published as they become available.

Additional ethical scenarios from 2007-2014 are available on the Defence Team intranet (accessible only on the Government of Canada network).
