Academic integrity refers to a student's ability to take responsibility for their own education. A student should own their own education. They should have the wisdom to regulate their own studies and keep their works morally sound. Plagiarizing the work of another individual shows a lack of understanding of the material in question, a lack of composure in a student, and a lack of respect.
According to Queen's University, plagiarizing can result in being banned from the University, having a degree or potential degree taken away, and a mark on record.

Academic integrity means to put originality, creativity and your own thoughts into a piece of work.
Expulsion is when you are banned from the program or course and cannot re-enter the program.
Suspension from a program is when you are temproraily suspended from being in the program.
There are sanctions such as being suspended, expulsion, having it on your record, or you can enter an accelerated process and respond within 5 days to avoid suspension. Whether or not the plagiarism was intentional the student still has to take responsibility for the consequences.

The minimum penalty for academic misconduct at Ryerson University is a grade reduction, including on the work to be assigned by the instructor.
As a consequence for any academic misconduct, a disciplinary notice (DN) will be placed on the student's academic record.
DN's are normally removed upon graduation with few exceptions.
In the case of disciplinary suspension, disciplinary withdrawal and/or expulsion, these are normally noted on the student's official transcript.
Academic integrity gives direct attention to the originality of a student's work. If a student's work is found to be unauthentic and plagiarized different levels of consequences will be imposed and recorded. According to the University of Maine, records will be noted in a student's file in the Office of Community Standards and then destroyed seven years after the record was created.

"Academic integrity means honesty and responsibility in scholarship. Intellectual contributions from others must be consistently and responsibly acknowledged. Academic work completed in any other way is fraudulent" (University Library).
Many schools have different policies on the subjects of academic integrity and plagiarism. Based on the information from the Queen's University website, it is clear that the consequences of such behavior in university is very serious. The process for dealing with this issue at Queen's is "first, a written notice will be sent to the student. Second, the student has the opportunity to respond to the notice. Third, a decision is made on the case. Fourth, the instructor will determine a remedy or sanction. Finally, the instructor will inform the student of the decision". Sanctions for this are that if a level one is found and there are no previous offences the incident will be kept in a sealed file. If a level two is found, despite if there are previous offences, it will be put onto the student's main file at the school. If the professor believes a larger penalty is warranted the case is handed to the associate Deans" (Queen'sU).

Academic Integrity, to my understanding is upholding the originality and honesty of one's academic work. This means that one has the dignity to not copy another person's work without citing it in the proper citation format. It means that one shall not plagiarize, copy, use another person's ideas, or let answers be seen in any situation. Academic Integrity is a very important issue at Carleton University, and is an issue that is taken very seriously.
Some examples of sanctions that may be given if a students academic integrity is under question are:
-a written reprimand
-the student is given a zero on the entire work or the part that was plagiarized
- the student must submit a new assignment
-a lower final grade in the course
-withdrawal of course(s)
Carleton U's Academic Integrity policy applies to all students attending the University, and any past graduates who were attending the University when the incident of academic integrity occurred.

Academic integrity is for your work to be your own, and for that person to obey all of the rules of honest scholarship. According to uOttawa's FAQ on the regulations of academic fraud, there are multiple stages of severity with appropriate consequences. A student that is accused of academic fraud has the choice between an accelerated process, which is essentially a faster processing where the student signs a contract admitting to the fact that they committed the offence, or the regular process which can last much longer and includes multiple meetings and discussions regarding the issue. The level of punishment ranges depends on the situation and can range between a reprimand, and having 3 to 30 required credits added to said students program of studies, that student can also be completely taken out of the course if he/she refuses to be processed.
I got this information from http://web5.uottawa.ca/mcs-smc/academicintegrity/regulation.php
Academic Fraud is defined as an “act by a student that may result in a false academic evaluation of that student or of another student” ("Academic Regulation 14 - Academic Fraud and Other Information"). Some examples of this include committing plagiarism, presenting research data that is falsified or concocted in any manner, and attributing a fact or statement to or referencing a concocted source ("Academic Regulation 14 - Academic Fraud and Other Information").
A sanction, as defined by Merriam-Webster Dictionary, is “a mechanism of social control for enforcing a society's standards” ("Sanction"). In the University of Ottawa, there are four sanction levels ("Sanction Levels"), ranging from a written reprimand to including this statement in the student’s transcript: “Sanction pursuant to contravention of the University regulation on fraud” ("Academic Regulation 14 - Academic Fraud and Other Information"). These vastly different sanctions are decided based on various factors such as how much was plagiarized, how much the assignment that was plagiarized is worth, etc. ("Sanction Levels").
There is the normal process and the accelerated process to deal with an acclaim of academic fraud. The accelerated process can only be applied to a student if the student gives consent after being informed of the situation (Academic Regulation 14 - Academic Fraud and Other Information).

At the University of Ottawa, they use a series of levels to categorize and deal with plagiarism.
The first level includes the use of quotations or paraphrasing without proper citations. The consequences deemed acceptable for this level range from a written reprimand to a mark of zero for all or part of the assignment.
The second level includes recurring level one offences, resubmissions of the same assignment to multiple classes, improperly citing on a large assignment, falsified sources, and claiming the work of others as their own. The consequences range from a mark of zero for the assignment to a requirement to complete additional courses, including the mark of zero for the course and the mark of zero for all classes in that year.
The third level pertains to cheating during an exam, and includes loss of scholarships to expulsion.
The fourth level pertains to falsification of research data, and is dealt with by revoking the student's degree and placing a notice on their transcript.

At McGill University, since 2001 students have been required to do a mandatory online academic integrity tutorial to make sure that students and staff both have a clear understanding of plagiarism and the academic standards they expect to be upheld.
Plagiarism refers to the representation of another's work, whether it be published or unpublished and passing it as his or her own. The information can be found within the Handbook on student rights and responsibilities.
