Code of Ethics
BRP's Code of Ethics sets the standard of behaviour we expect from our employees. The Code does not aim to foresee every situation that might arise but identifies guiding principles to help employees make decisions that are consistent with BRP's values and reputation. It applies, without exception, to all members of the Board of Directors, officers, employees and representatives. BRP suppliers and partners, as well as third parties, are also held to the Code when acting on behalf of BRP.
The BRP Code of Ethics is available in all our official working languages:
Ethical behaviour is everyone's responsibility
If you have questions, require guidance, or have grounds to believe that a provision of BRP's Code of Ethics has been breached, or that you may have breached the Code, consult the resources listed below for more information. Employees will not be penalized, dismissed, demoted or suspended and no retaliatory action will be taken against anyone for reporting or inquiring in good faith about potential breaches of the Code of Ethics or for seeking guidance on how to handle suspected breaches. All inquiries are handled promptly and discreetly.
You have the right to remain anonymous, and confidentiality and/or anonymity will be maintained. It is easier, however, to conduct a full and fair investigation of your concerns if you identify yourself and those involved. Initiate direct dialogue with your supervisor, your Human Resources representative, your Legal Services representative or the next level of management.
Should you wish to remain discreet, BRP has selected an independent service provider to provide you with a way to anonymously and confidentially report actual or possible violations to the BRP Code of Ethics.
To file a report using the dedicated website or to find the toll-free number in your country to do so over the phone, please click here.
Penalties for violations
Failure to respect the letter or the spirit of the Code of Ethics or the law may lead to disciplinary measures commensurate with the violation, including termination of employment. Employees who break the law expose both themselves and BRP to criminal penalties (such as fines and jail sentences) or civil sanctions (such as damage awards or fines).
BRP’s Audit Committee

c/o the Corporate Secretary
