Current Online Consultations

The Ministry of Attorney General often consults with British Columbians on new legislation and policy.

One means of consulting is to publish either a discussion paper or a white paper with an invitation to the public to respond. Another means is to solicit public input through an online survey or blog.

Public feedback on papers and responses to surveys is important because it helps government shape new laws and policies.

Government is currently undertaking a comprehensive review of the Lobbyists Registration Act, including the mandate of the Office of the Registrar of Lobbyists, to ensure transparency and accountability, and to protect the integrity of the democratic institutions and the interests of British Columbians.  As part of this review, government is seeking stakeholder comment on changes to the Lobbyists Registration Act recommended by the former Registrar of Lobbyists, Elizabeth Denham, in her January 21, 2013 report entitled “Lobbying in British Columbia: The Way Forward” and November 5, 2013 report entitled, “Lobbying in British Columbia: Recommendations for Changes to the Lobbyists Registration Act”.  Any additional comments or concerns are also welcomed.
