Interactions with the Canadian public sector (including governments, agencies and crown corporations) include requests for approvals, clarifications on how existing laws will be administered, contracting and procurement discussions, efficient dispute management, advocacy and requests for changes to policies or existing laws.
Businesses often overlook that dealing with public sector officials at all levels are subject to a number of regulatory considerations that don’t apply to interactions in the private sector. These include lobbying registration requirements, conflict of interest considerations, special rules relating to procurement activity, special notification or adherence to procedural requirements, government advocacy considerations, and public disclosure of correspondence through access to information regimes. This program will explore federal, provincial and municipal laws relating to these matters.
