Lobbyist Registry website improvement
The City of Toronto's Lobbyist Registry is in the process of launching new online lobbyist and subject matter screens on the Lobbyist Registry website. The screens will be easier to use and will provide information to help lobbyists register.

"Launching the new screens will require the disruption of service for approximately one day," said Linda Gehrke, the Lobbyist Registrar. "We apologize in advance for any inconvenience today."

The new registration screens, which are expected to be up and running by Monday, July 12, will implement amendments to the Lobbying Bylaw (Chapter 140 of the Toronto Municipal Code) that Toronto City Council enacted in July 2008. The amendments require lobbyists to report their lobbying activities within three business days after lobbying. Lobbyists will report the public office holder they have lobbied, the subject matter, and the date and method of communication.
