Conflict of Interest Act
These amendments to the Conflict of Interest Act will provide the Governor in Council with the authority to designate an individual or class of individuals as public officer holders or reporting public office holders for the purposes of the Act.
For example, it will allow the Governor in Council to designate Members of Parliament who are not currently covered by the Act but who regularly attend Cabinet committee meetings.
The Government realizes the importance of ensuring that these individuals should be subject to the Act and its conflict of interest, disclosure, recusal and post‑employment rules.
