What you need to know
As part of Regional Council's commitment to enhance accountability and transparency, all lobbyists must now register online prior to lobbying a Region of Peel public office holder. Registration is a simple process and must occur before or within five business days of lobbying commencing.
The Lobbyist Registry allows the public to access a record of lobbying activity that occurs within our organization.
