Disclosure of Wrongdoing Reporting
The Public Interest Disclosure of Wrongdoing Act and Regulations became law on December 20, 2011. This Act and Regulations provide an avenue for government employees (this includes NSLA staff), and members of the public to disclose allegations of wrongdoing. Wrongdoing includes a misuse or gross mismanagement of public funds, etc. For more information on the definition of wrongdoing, please visit: https://novascotia.ca/ombu/disclosures.htm
The Office of the Ombudsman has established a Disclosure of Wrongdoing Unit and Inquiry Line to provide a confidential avenue for individuals to obtain information regarding Disclosure of Wrongdoing. If you feel you have experienced a wrongdoing with Nova Scotia Legal Aid, please contact the Office of the Ombudsman. Individuals may access the Wrongdoing Inquiry Line toll free at (1-877-670-1100) to obtain information and speak with an Ombudsman Representative, or by email at Ombudsman@novascotia.ca. The Act also protects the person who makes a disclosure from experiencing reprisals as a result of making a disclosure.
