Canada’s War on Whistleblowers

January 19, 2023
Back to All Events
Join WIN at the Centre for Free Expression panel on Canada's flawed whistleblowing law, what it has meant for the public,  and what can be done to protect those who speak up in the public interest.

When: 19 January 2023, 3:00pm - 4:30pm (EST)
Where: Online, Zoom. 

In more than 15 years of operation, costing over $100 million, Canada’s federal whistleblower law has not protected a single whistleblower. For the more than 500 people reporting reprisals against them, Canada’s law has only made their lives worse.
