CSPC Committee Guiding Principles 2019

These principles apply to all volunteers of the Canadian Science Policy Centre. We greatly value these principles and request that you abide by and respect the terms below:


1. Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure

All volunteers will agree to make all reasonable, necessary and appropriate efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of all of CSPC’s Confidential Information. The term “Confidential Information” includes all information provided by or on behalf of CSPC to you, including, without limitation, its volunteer and outreach contacts and databases, strategic plan, budgets, business plans, educational programs, external relations, communications, networking opportunities, education and outreach activities, research initiatives, as well as the various versions or formats into which such information may be converted or any derivatives thereof.


2. Respect

As a volunteer, you are responsible for upholding the integrity of the Canadian Science Policy Centre. We ask that you conduct yourself in a manner that fosters a positive and productive environment. This includes refraining from using any inappropriate language or physical gestures, during any time acting on behalf of CSPC. This also means allowing for a free flow of information and dialogue without judgment, during all CSPC discussions, such as, but not limited to, meetings, online correspondence or events.


3. Commitment

Volunteers for CSPC are required to commit to ongoing participation in their subcommittees throughout the entire duration of planning and executing the 2019 Conference. CSPC volunteers are located across the country, so participation is largely through online communication. You will be asked to actively and consistently engage in the appropriate online forums, organized by your respective subcommittee.
