Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics (ETHI)

The Committee met twice this week, on February 7th and 9th, 2012, to discuss potential amendments to the Lobby Act at the federal level. Witnesses included Information and Ethics Commissioners from Alberta, Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia to share their experiences with the Lobby Act at the provincial level.

The Committee has been studying the Lobby Act to ensure that the relationship between lobbyists and political office-holders can be transparent and well-understood by Canadians.
