As a self-regulated profession, engineering in Canada relies on a deep trust with members of the public.
If you find yourself in a situation where a colleague or employer has engaged in illegal or unethical practices, your professional responsibility to report what you know may come into conflict with practical considerations such as legal costs, loss of employment, and the expenses of finding new work.
Whistleblower coverage helps you do the right thing, offering substantial financial support when you need to say something. The coverage not only protects you financially, but also helps create a thriving engineering profession that can continue to the betterment of Canadian society.
