8. Office staff may not, directly or indirectly, be party to a contract with the Government or a department or public body.
However, they may
(1) have interests in an enterprise that is party to such a contract, provided that the extent of the interests and the circumstances in which the contract is entered into make collusion or undue influence unlikely;
(2) receive a loan, a reimbursement, a grant, an indemnity or any other benefit from the Government or a department or public body under any Act, regulation or program; and
(3) hold securities issued by the Government or a public body on the same terms as are applicable to all.
