Can I accept an invitation to an activity, a golf tournament for example, organized by a DND supplier?
Generally speaking, no, because these activities are usually fairly expensive. You must avoid being placed or appearing to be placed under an obligation to any person or organization that might profit from special consideration. That being said, cases should be reviewed on an individual basis; you are advised to consult the Director DEP, Conflict of Interest Section before accepting such invitations. Read the CANFORGEN on invitations to golf tournaments for more information.
