Update from the Office of the Integrity Commissioner

Published on:

For Ontario lobbyists, an important update from the Office of the Integrity Commissioner (OIC): Guidance for Lobbyists on Gifts & Benefits.

Lobbyists should be cautious about offering a gift to or paying for a meal for a public office holder. Offering a gift or benefit may lead to the individual being placed in a real or potential conflict of interest, either at the time or in the future. If that happens, a lobbyist could be found to be non-compliant with the Lobbyists Registration Act, 1998.

The OIC has prepared a resource to assist lobbyists on the issue of gifts. Read more here http://www.oico.on.ca/home/lobbyists-registration/resources/guidance—gifts.
