January 2017: The Office of the Commissioner of Lobbying (OCL) has engaged Kelly Sears and Beechwood Consulting & Research to conduct an Evaluation of the OCL’s Outreach and Education program. The evaluation will involve a considerable amount of fact-finding, including interviews with consultant and in-house lobbyists and public office holders, along with a comparative analysis of how other jurisdictions in Canada and internationally carry out outreach and education activities.
