Statutory responsibilities under the Lobbyists Registration Act

On April 1, 2017 the Lobbyists’ Registration Act was proclaimed. The purpose of the Act is to recognize that free and open access to government is an important matter of public interest, that lobbying public office holders is a legitimate activity when appropriately conducted, that it is desirable that public office holders and the public be able to know who is attempting to influence government and that a system for registering paid lobbyists should not impede access to government.

The Act requires consultant lobbyists and in-house lobbyists to submit returns to the Office of the Integrity Commissioner. He is required to create and maintain a registry of lobbyists and make it available for public inspection, including electronically through the internet as of July 1, 2017.

The Office is working on creating the registry and the forms that will assist in compiling the appropriate information.

If you have questions, please contact our Office at 1-506-457-7890 for more information.
