Ethics Program

Red River College’s third-party ethics reporting service ConfidenceLine is no longer available as of May 1, 2020 and the ability for employees to make anonymous submissions to the College regarding suspected wrongdoing or unethical conduct is not supported at this time.

To report suspected improper activity in confidence, please see RRC Reporting Channels below and review the College’s Ethical Behaviour Policy and Public Interest Disclosure/Whistleblower Protection Policy.

If employees have questions regarding reporting a concern or making a Public Interest Disclosure, they may send a message to RRCEthics@rrc.ca and the Executive Administrator to the Board of Governors will review the message and respond with options for proceeding or ask questions for clarification. The confidentiality of messages received will be maintained.

As always, complaints and disclosures must be made in good faith by employees who honestly believe misconduct has been or is about to be committed and when there are reasonable indications to support their belief.

RRC Reporting Channels

It is incumbent that any employee who becomes aware of wrongdoing or unethical behaviour as defined in the College’s Ethical Behaviour Policy and Public Interest Disclosure/Whistleblower Protection Policy disclose such information to the College.

Reports should be made in confidence to an immediate supervisor who is required to take a report to the appropriate next level. If an employee feels they cannot make a report to their supervisor, the following confidential reporting options are available:

  3. Chief Human Resource Officer (also the designated RRC Public Interest Disclosure Officer)
  4. Executive Director or Vice-President responsible for the department where the concern is

  • Fraudulent financial reporting
  • Manipulation or falsification of data
  • Health, safety and environmental concerns
  • Violations of law, regulations, policy or procedure
  • Bribery or kickbacks
  • Unethical conduct
