The Lobbyists Registration System (LRS) allows registrants to file and manage lobbying registrations and monthly communication reports. To submit information about lobbying activities, registrants must first create and activate their account.
New rules with Elections Canada
New rules will be in force for the next general election that will apply to third parties, i.e. individuals or organizations that participate in the democratic process, but do not seek election themselves. These new rules will capture a broader array of activities over a greater period of time than the previous rules. As such, third parties may be required to register with Elections Canada, even though they did not have to in past elections.
Please consult the Political Financing Handbook for Third Parties, Financial Agents and Auditors (EC 20227)
for more details.
