On Friday, February 8, 2019, PAAC-BC will be hosting a seminar in Vancouver on the implications of British Columbia’s Bill 54 (“Lobbyists Registration Amendment Act”) and Yukon’s Bill 23 (“Lobbyists Registration Act”).
The seminar will explore the impacts of Bill 23 and Bill 54 on both in-house lobbyists and consultant lobbyists. It will also provide an overview of enforcement activity and highlight a number of compliance best practices. At the conclusion of the seminar, both speakers will be available to answer one-on-one questions.
The seminar is being co-hosted and sponsored by Fasken.
