Conflict of Interest Provisions in the Community Charter

The recent British Columbia Court of Appeal (BCCA) decision on conflict of interest in Schlenker v. Torgrimson has introduced a number of considerations for staff and elected officials when determining when elected officials may be in a conflict of interest contrary to provisions of the Community Charter.

The Local Government Management Association and UBCM have collaborated with the provincial Ministry of Community, Sport & Cultural Development to review the BCCA decision and identify some key questions and practical steps to assist local government elected officials and staff when applying the implications of the decision to their individual circumstances.
