Public Input Sought for Proposed Canada’s Federal Lobbyists’ Code of Conduct

The public has until February 18, 2022, to share input on a proposed draft update of Canada’s Federal Lobbyists’ Code of Conduct.

On December 15, the Office of the Commissioner of Lobbying began receiving all views, suggestions, and perspectives from stakeholders concerning the mandatory standards lobbyists must respect when engaging in lobbying activities at the federal level in Canada.

The non-statutory Code of Conduct, last updated in 2015, applies to registered consultants and in-house lobbyists.

Comments may be made through email sent to engagement@lobbycanada.gc.ca or at the commissioner’s website hosting the proposed draft at https://lobbycanada.gc.ca/en/rules/the-lobbyists-code-of-conduct/lobbyists-code-of-conduct/consultation-on-future-changes-to-the-lobbyists-code-of-conduct.

All submissions will be published on the commissioner’s website after the consultation period ends.
