Canada Lobbyist Registration System to be Updated
The Office of the Commissioner of Lobbying is set to enhance the lobbyist registration system following website maintenance on July 5, 2014. The system updates will provide lobbyists with a late notification when monthly communication reports are not filed on time.
In addition, the system will make reporting easier by excluding government institutions without a designated public office holder.
Previous website updates have included a flowchart to help lobbyists determine if they need to register and a page with frequently asked questions regarding definitions and registration requirements.
The Registry of Lobbyists is available at https://ocl-cal.gc.ca/eic/site/012.nsf/eng/h_00000.html.
