Register as a Lobbyist

Lobbyists must update or register the lobbying of a public office holder within five business days of the first communication, or before lobbying starts.

Anyone who engages in lobbying as defined in the Lobbyist Registry By-Law must complete the form. Niagara Region recognizes three types of lobbyists:

  • Consultant lobbyist: an individual who lobbies for payment on behalf of a client (such as another individual, a business, partnership, or organization or other entity)
  • In-house lobbyist: an individual who is an employee, partner or sole proprietor and who lobbies on behalf of their own employer, business or other entity
  • Voluntary unpaid lobbyist: an individual who lobbies without payment on behalf of an individual, business or any for-profit entity for the benefit of the interests of the individual, business or for-profit entity

Lobbyists are to disclose lobbying activities by identifying the subject matter, the type of lobbyist they are, the individual they lobbied, the method of communication and the date.
