Home of the Defence Ethics Programme
The Defence Ethics Programme (DEP) is a comprehensive values-based ethics programme put in place to meet the needs of the Department of National Defence (DND) and the Canadian Forces (CF), at both the individual and the organizational levels.
A conflict of interest (COI) arises from an activity or situation that places a DND employee or a CF member in a real, potential or apparent conflict between their private interests and their official duties and responsibilities.
