The Saskatchewan Lobbyists Act regulates lobbying activities in Saskatchewan and is administered by the Registrar of Lobbyists.
Public office holders can lobby after leaving office or their position with the provincial government but there is a “cooling off” period of between 6-12 months before they are legally allowed to do so.
The Registry is a database containing information on lobbyists, who they are lobbying and the purpose of their lobbying activities.
The Saskatchewan Lobbyists Act regulates lobbying activities in Saskatchewan at the provincial government level only.
Lobbying is a democratic tradition deeply rooted in the Magna Carta and the Bill of Rights (1689).
The majority of Provinces, the Federal government and some municipalities have lobbying legislation.
Volunteers are not required to register as a lobbyist as they are not paid to communicate with public office holders.
