Spring 2018 - Bill 11: Lobbyists Amendment Act
Amendments to the Lobbyists Act will better ensure that lobbying activities are easy to access and track. Changes will further regulate lobbyists and enhance oversight of their activities to improve confidence in government decision-making.
“Albertans have the right to know who is trying to influence the government. The proposed changes would make this information more transparent and accessible. We are committed to ensuring Albertans have confidence in their government.”
Albertans deserve to know when lobbyists are attempting to influence their government.
We are confident the proposed changes will increase transparency without creating additional barriers to government access on issues that matter.
The changes in the Bill will give Albertans access to more information about those being paid to influence government.
