New Brunswick Passes Lobbyists’ Registration Act
The day before scheduled adjournment, New Brunswick’s Legislative Assembly approved the Lobbyists’ Registration Act, establishing a lobbyist registry for the province.
The Act establishes a registrar of lobbyists and outlines requirements for registration by consultant and in-house lobbyists.
The province attempted to create a registry a number of times over the last several years, but failed because of financial concerns and technical complications.
