Obtaining a BCeID

BCeID is an online service provided by government.  Once you set up a user ID and password, you can securely sign in to BCeID participating government online services, including the Lobbyists Registry.

There are three types of BCeID:

Basic BCeID - Allows you to access online services that need to recognize your account when you return, and do not require knowing who you are. To obtain a Basic BCeID there is no verification of your identity and registration is completed entirely online.  If you use a Basic BCeID to access the Lobbyists Registry, you will be required to provide proof of your identity to the ORL.

Personal BCeID – This is not valid for access to the Lobbyists Registry.

Business BCeID - Allows you to access online services that require that your business organization’s unique identity must be verified along with where you are acting in a business capacity as an authorized representative of the business (i.e. not as an individual). Business BCeID may be used by representatives of companies, partnerships, sole proprietorships or organizations including municipalities and not-for-profit societies. Additional accounts for employees can be created as required.

The majority of consultant lobbyists set up a Basic BCeID.  However, a lobbying firm may set up a Business BCeID and each consultant would have an account with their own user ID and password.
