Research Documents on Ethics Prepared for the Oliphant (Brian Mulroney) Commission

The most recent issue of the Weekly Checklist of Government of Canada Publications lists Public Policy Issues and the Oliphant Commission, a series of independent studies of the ethical regimes governing former and current holders of high office in Canada.

The Oliphant Commission [see CBC backgrounder] recently published its report on former prime minister Brian Mulroney's business dealings with German-Canadian corporate lobbyist Karlheinz Schreiber.

Justice Jeffrey Oliphant was appointed by the federal government to look into revelations that Mulroney had accepted $225,000 in cash-stuffed envelopes from Schreiber in the early 1990s.

The three studies conducted for the Commission are:
  • Regulations on Post–Public Employment: A Comparative Analysis
  • Employment and Post-Employment Restrictions on Prime Ministers and Members of Parliament in Canada
  • Who Is Getting the Message? Communications at the Centre of Government
The Weekly Checklist includes a listing of book and serial titles which have been released during the previous week by the Parliament of Canada, federal departments, and Statistics Canada.
