    3. Fill out a report on your potential violation
    4. Record the report key and password for your report – this will be used to receive updates from TELUS and to add to your existing report if need be
  • Can I remain anonymous?
  • Yes, If you request anonymity. An Internet portal never identifies a visitor by screen name and the EthicsPoint system strips away Internet addresses so that anonymity is totally maintained. Plus, EthicsPoint is contractually committed not to pursue a reporter’s identity.

    Continued follow-up on a matter through the follow up tool is particularly important for anonymous reports, where we have no other means to communicate with you, the reporter. If you have identified yourself by name, the TELUS Ethics office or a designated subject matter expert will contact you directly to discuss your concern and ask any additional questions we may have.

  • What happens to my report once I have submitted it?
  • Your report will be logged and forwarded to the TELUS Ethics office for investigation and resolution.

    When submitting your question or report, you will be given a report key and asked to create a personal password. You will need this information to access the "Follow up on Report" section on the Web site to check the status or resolution of the matter you reported. We ask you to follow-up on your inquiry or report within three business days. Please check back with the EthicsLine to:

    • check the accuracy of your report
    • view acknowledgement of your report
    • find out if additional information is needed to process your question/concern
    • view status or updates to your investigation
    • find out the resolution of your matter
  • What should I do if I lose my report key?
  • Because of the high level of confidentiality that is maintained for reports, if you lose your report key or password, you will be required to file a new report. You can mention in the new report that this matter relates to prior report "X."
