As a proud member of the Canadian Association of Virtual Assistants, Global Alliance of Virtual Assistants, and Virtual Assistant Networking, I am fully committed to adhering to the Virtual Assistant Industry Code of Ethics.

1. Being honest and trustworthy.

With honesty comes trust, and without trust any successful organization cannot perform or provide effectively. I will not mislead or make false claims as to my abilities, background or experience. I will not take on projects that are beyond my capabilities.

As a Virtual Assistant, relationships become common between my clients and myself and my associates and myself. With these relationships, personal information may be shared. I will respect my clients and associates and not make their personal information available and will respect their privacy.

All necessary measures have been implemented to protect client data, privacy and confidentiality.

I will conduct myself and my business in such a way as I would want to do business with others. I will operate within all local, provincial and federal laws, rules and regulations.
