Ethics Program

Upcoming Ethics Courses TBA

CAPLA marked its 20th anniversary by launching a new ethics program in January 2014. The program, consisting of a free ethics training course and new code of professional conduct for members, is an initiative of the CAPLA Board of Directors.

Dr. Gary Lepine, a Calgary-based clinical ethicist and organizational consultant, designed the two half-day ethics courses specifically for CAPLA members. Part I is an overview of professional ethics; Part II is a practical application of professional ethics in the workplace using land asset management situations and scenarios. Members must complete both half-day sessions in order to fulfill the program.

Dr. Lepine has been providing ethics seminars in the oil and gas sector since 2003. In 2008, he established Concord Professional Development, expanding his work to include consulting in workplace environment, leadership and organizational culture. Gary is currently a clinical ethicist with Alberta Health Services and Chair of the Board of New Heights Learning Services, a Calgary school for children on the autistic spectrum.

NOTE: Each ethics training course, valued at $175, is currently offered at no cost to active CAPLA members. Cancellations or substitutions may be made in writing up to two weeks before the course date. Registrants who miss a course without notice will be invoiced $175+GST to be paid within two weeks of the missed course date.
