Changes are coming for lobbyists in British Columbia come April 1st, including those operating out of BC law firms:
If you are engaged in lobbying — or employ individuals to lobby on behalf of your organization — there are new rules coming into force April 1, 2010. Familiarize yourself with the newly amended Lobbyists Registration Act to ensure you are prepared and in compliance with the legislation.
A new searchable and free database of registered BC lobbyists will be launched April 1, 2010, when the amendments are brought into force.
For those interested in what this service may reveal, there are already a series of BC lobbying reports available on the government website.
