Le commissaire au lobbyisme du Québec veille au respect de la Loi sur la transparence et l'éthique en matière de lobbyisme et au Code de déontologie des lobbyistes.

The public and the media

The public’s role

The Act seeks to enable the public to know who is attempting to influence public decision-makers. By consulting the Lobbyists Registry, the public can intervene in a timely manner, before the decisions are made. Concretely, it is to the public's full advantage to:

  • be interested in what is happening in their public institutions; 
  • consult the Lobbyists Registry and subscribe to Info registre hebdo (Weekly Registry Info);
  • make a report to the Commissioner of Lobbying when they recognize, supported by facts, that a lobbyist is not registered in the Lobbyists Registry.
