Subject Matter of the Lobbying Activity
Specific Topics of Lobbying Communications Intended Outcomes Associated Subject Matters
British Columbia’s Lobbyists Transparency Act (2020) (LTA) has placed a considerable burden on the not-for-profit sector and smaller organizations, including Chambers of Commerce. This legislation adds administrative constraints to our ability to perform our traditional roles in our communities. We request the definition of "small organization" be amended to 25 employees or less and the act provide a full exemption for all small organizations and only require registration of actual acts of lobbying upon completion, increasing the 50-hour threshold to 200 hours for charities and non-profits and eliminate the requirement for Chambers of Commerce altogether. In addition, establish a more streamlined lobbying tracking report form and process and remove accumulated lobbying reporting requirements when working with other organizations.
  • Development or enactment of any regulation, including the enactment of a regulation for the purposes of amending or repealing a regulation
