Lobbyist Registry

The Lobbyist Registry came into effect on January 1, 2024, and forms part of the City of Barrie’s Accountability and Transparency framework. The registry documents instances of substantive communication — such as telephone calls, meetings, or emails — from a lobbyist to a City employee and/or member(s) of City Council.

Effective January 1, 2024, anyone who engages in lobbying as defined in the Lobbyist Registry By-law must register.
