Alberta government employees can contact the Office of the Public Interest Commissioner with concerns or allegations of wrongdoing related to improper disposal or shredding of documents during or following the current transition of government.

“To knowingly breach rules related to the retention and destruction of records would be a contravention of the law, one of the definitions of wrongdoing under the Public Interest Disclosure (Whistleblower Protection) Act,” said Peter Hourihan, Alberta’s Public Interest Commissioner.

“We want to remind employees if they see something that looks wrong, they can contact our office if they have any questions or concerns. Of course, we also encourage employees to familiarize themselves with the various rules and acts surrounding government records.”

Employees can contact our office by calling 1-855-641-8659 or 780-641-8659, emailing us at [email protected], or online at
