Guidance - Gifts

Lobbyists should be cautious about offering a gift to or paying for a meal for a public office holder. Offering a gift or benefit may lead to the individual being placed in a real or potential conflict of interest, either at the time or in the future. If that happens, a lobbyist could be found to be non-compliant with the Lobbyists Registration Act, 1998.

The OIC has prepared a resource to assist lobbyists on the issue of gifts.
