Public Interest Disclosure Act
Interior Health (IH) is committed to honesty, integrity and accountability in its operations, programs and services and promotes a culture of openness and transparency.
In accordance with British Columbia’s Public Interest Disclosure Act (PIDA), IH takes seriously all reports of wrongdoing and appreciates the courage of employees and health professionals who come forward to identify serious concerns and/or systemic wrongdoing that compromise the integrity of IH and the safety of employees, health professionals and clients/patients.
The information you provide on this form will be used to assess whether your report will be investigated. PIDA applies to all current and former IH Employees and Health Professionals, including the IH Board of Directors, and is comprised of the following kinds of serious and systemic wrongdoing:
- A serious act or failure to act that, if proven, would constitute an offence under an enactment of British Columbia or Canada;
- An act or failure to act that creates a substantial and specific danger to the life, health or safety of persons, or to the environment, other than a danger that is inherent in the performance of an employee's duties or functions;
- A serious misuse of public funds or public assets;
- Gross or systemic mismanagement; or
- Knowingly directing or counselling a person to commit a wrongdoing described above.
If your concern does not meet the above criteria, the Public Interest Disclosure Act may not be the best way to report the wrongdoing in order to seek appropriate resolution. Matters that do not fall under PIDA may be dealt with through other established internal and external policies and reporting mechanisms. Please consider addressing the matter through Safe Reporting or contact your supervisor or union representative.
Using the form below, please provide as much detail in your report as possible.
