How do I bring a matter to the Registrar's attention?
If you have concerns regarding potential non-compliance with the Lobbyists Registration Act (LRA), you will be expected to provide the Registrar with:
- the name and address of the alleged subject; and
- a description of the facts that allegedly constitute a violation of the LRA.
What to expect:
- The ORL will not provide you with any information concerning whether or not an investigation is commenced into the matter, as the ORL is prohibited from disclosing any information as per section 7.92 of the LRA.
- If the ORL looks into the matter and commences an investigation, and the investigation results in a finding of non-compliance, the report must be tabled with the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly. The ORL will also post the report on the ORL website.
- If the investigation results in a finding of compliance, a report of the finding may be prepared and, if it considered in the public interest, the report may be made publicly available on the ORL website.
