Code of Ethics
In PACCC’s commitment to excellence through proper ethical conduct, all members agree to abide by a written and regulated Code of Ethics. The PACCC Code of Ethics is updated every 5 years. This helps ensure current issues are considered and addressed. Our current Code was approved by the PACCC membership at its 2013 AGM in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
PACCC has a process in place for the public and other counselling professionals who see that one of our member’s may be in breach of PACCC’s Code of Ethics. PACCC is committed to excellence in professionalism, competence, respect for clients, a faith perspective, continuing education and adhering to our ethical code of conduct.
If anyone feels that our code has been violated in any way by one of our members, please read through the below three documents and proceed accordingly.
The first is our procedure for filing formal ethical complaints… Ethical Complaints Procedure
The second is the paperwork required to file such a report…. Ethical Complaints Documents
