Yukon Government Seeks Public Input for Lobbying Law
The Government of Yukon is seeking public input for development of a mandatory lobbyist registry.
On August 6, the government issued a news release stating proposed legislation would cover both consultant and in-house lobbyists. The voluntary public survey is hosted by the Yukon Bureau of Statistics and is available until September 4. The survey is available online or on paper, by request. All public input remains confidential in accordance with the Statistics Act (Yukon).
If legislation concerning lobbying passes, Yukon would become the first Canadian territory with a lobbyist registry. Currently, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut also do not have lobbying laws. The federal government and all provinces in Canada have lobbyist registries.
