Mayor Requests

Lobbyist Registry

The Lobbyist Registry is intended to enhance transparency to the public by providing an accessible record of persons who lobby public office holders outside of public forums like Council and Committee meetings or public open houses.

The Lobbyist Registry By-law came into effect on January 1, 2016, and includes the Lobbyist Code of Conduct which all lobbyists must abide by.

A person with the intent to lobby may register as a lobbyist​ prior to the first lobbying communication with a public office holder and shall do so no later than five (5) business days after the lobbying communication takes place.
