Public disclosure statements for Ontario’s Members of Provincial Parliament have been filed with the Clerk of the Legislative Assembly.
The statements reflect each MPP’s holdings as of September 1, 2015. As stipulated by the Members’ Integrity Act, 1994, all members are required to privately disclose their assets, liabilities and other information in a statement filed with the Integrity Commissioner. All MPPs have met to review their holdings with Integrity Commissioner Lynn Morrison to discuss their statements. These meetings provided a valuable opportunity to discuss conflict of interest issues, as well as review the rules for accepting gifts, the appropriate use of social media and forthcoming changes to the lobbyists registration system.
Commissioner Morrison retired on December 31, 2015. The Honourable David Wake begins a five-year appointment as Integrity Commissioner on February 1, 2016.
The Integrity Commissioner is required to publicly disclose certain information from each MPP’s private disclosure statement. The statements are available at www.oico.on.ca and can also be viewed in the Office of the Clerk of the Legislative Assembly.
