The University has launched a Whistleblower Safe Disclosure hotline for faculty and staff to report concerns about suspected misconduct. The hotline reporting program routes concerns directly to an independent third-party service provider.
The University has partnered with Grant Thornton to deliver the Grant Thornton CARE program, a confidential, anonymous third-party service which provides a secure channel for employees to make a report about suspected improper activity through any of the following methods:
- Phone – by calling 1-855-484-CARE (2273)
- Online – by submitting a report at https://www.grantthorntoncare.ca
- E-mail – by sending an email to email@example.com
- Mail – by sending a letter to the CARE post office box
The hotline is an element of the Board-approved Whistleblower Safe Disclosure Policy and Procedures which supports the University’s commitment to operating with integrity and accountability. It creates a safe mechanism, free of fear of reprisal, for employees who want to disclose information about suspected improper activity, such as a serious breach of University policy, a violation of legal or regulatory requirements, financial or research misconduct, conflicts of interest, or other similar situations. If you have questions about the reporting program, please reach out to Kim Lassaline (firstname.lastname@example.org).
