Faculty Rights and Responsibilities

Code of Conduct

Effective November 2014 the BC’s public sector organizations will operate under new taxpayer accountability principles which strengthen accountability, promote cost control and ensure that corporations operate in the best interests of taxpayers.

The Taxpayer Accountability Principles apply to all provincial public sector organizations, including Crown corporations, health authorities and post‐secondary institutions. These principles are:

  • Cost Consciousness (Efficiency)
  • Accountability
  • Appropriate Compensation
  • Service
  • Respect
  • Integrity

In response to this provincial government directive, JIBC, along with the other 18 colleges, institutes, and universities, worked collaboratively to develop a Code of Conduct based on the BC’s Taxpayer Accountability Principles.

Our students and stakeholders count on JIBC to provide high‐quality training and education, which meets the needs of a wide range of students. They also expect JIBC to conduct all its business with the highest level of professionalism, efficiency, and courtesy.

JIBC’s Code of Conduct embeds JIBC’s core values and the maintenance of high ethical and professional standards in all of its activities. It does not override but, rather, complements existing JIBC policies and procedures.

The Code of Conduct applies to all employees of JIBC including full‐time, part‐time, sessional, term, and casual employees. Each employee is responsible for familiarizing him/herself with the provisions of the Code and ensuring that she/he complies with them.

All employees are required to formally acknowledge that they have read and understood the Code of Conduct policy. To access the policy go to JIBC Code of Conduct page:
