Canada’s Northwest Territories to Consider Lobbyist Registry
Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs) have passed a motion requesting the government implement a lobbyist registry in the territory. The registry would identify lobbyists and each meeting with elected officials.
MLAs have also asked the government to develop an online database to allow public access to the registry.
Only New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and the three territories are without a lobbyist registry.
