Declaration of Interest Registry

The Municipal Conflict of Interest Act requires Members of Council to declare any direct or indirect pecuniary interest in relation to a matter under consideration. A pecuniary interest relating to a matter is one where there is a reasonable likelihood or expectation of financial loss or gain by the member or related persons as defined in the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act. The onus to declare a pecuniary interest rests with the member, and there is time dedicated for these declarations on every meeting agenda.

The Municipal Conflict of Interest Act requires municipalities to maintain a registry of all declarations made under this Act. The registry must include the original written declaration provided by the member of Council and must be available to the public.

Original declarations are available for public consultation at Hearst Town Hall from Monday to Friday, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Additional details can be obtained from the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. M.50
