Company Code of Work Ethics


Main objectives of the company with regard to its employees:


  • Mutual respect for everyone regardless of hierarchical rank

  • Privacy Consideration

  • Prevention of bullying  and harassment

  • Strengthening work safety practices

  • Prevention of conflicts of interest



Notes from the employer


All directives apply to all persons working in the company, without discrimination.


When the employee is hired or in the first days of his functions in the company, the employee will receive the code of ethics to read it. The owner will provide time for the employee to ask questions and clarify any points requiring clarification at the employee's request. The employee will be asked to affix his signature to a common document to demonstrate awareness of and adherence to the code of ethics.


Consultation of the code of ethics is simple (available at all times in the workplace) and it can evolve and be adjusted to reflect the good professional conduct desired by all. In this case, employees would be notified. A new reading of the document would be done by each employee and a new signature would then be required.




Chapter 1 - The values to which the company adheres are as follows:

1.1 Competence

Employee  carries out his duties with professionalism and diligence. He uses his knowledge, skills and experience to achieve the desired results, participates in training offered by the company and strives to keep his knowledge up to date. He is responsible for his decisions and his actions as well as for the judicious use of the human and material resources made available to him within the framework of his employment, including the data to which he has access (confidential or privileged information).


1.2 Impartiality

The employee demonstrates neutrality and objectivity. It makes its decisions in compliance with the applicable rules and by granting fair treatment to all. He performs his duties without partisan consideration.


1.3 Integrity

The employee conducts himself in a fair and honest manner and in compliance with laws and regulations. He avoids putting himself in a situation where he would be indebted to anyone who could unduly influence him in the performance of his job duties.

The employee honors his commitments by acting on them in a timely manner and makes efficient and reasonable use of the company's human and material resources.



The employee cannot confuse company property with his own. He may not use them for his benefit or for the benefit of a third party, as well as the data to which he has access. The failure of the employee to comply with this rule by appropriating company property without authorization constitutes a serious breach and leads to the implementation of administrative or disciplinary measures which may go as far as dismissal.


1.4 Loyalty

The employee acknowledges that he is a representative of the company and that he must perform his duties in accordance with this Code. The employee must contribute to the influence, efficiency and notoriety of the company and is encouraged to promote its activities.


1.5. The respect

The employee shows consideration, courtesy, attentiveness and discretion with regard to the public, his colleagues and the various partners of the company. He is also diligent and helps maintain a healthy and safe work environment free from violence, harassment or discrimination. 


The employee undertakes to treat his colleagues, the public, the directors and officers of the company and the partners with respect and to maintain in place a work environment which encourages the contribution of each one, which takes into account their value and guarantees respect for rights and freedoms. 


The employee of the company agrees not to commit any act that could harm the company or its reputation.
