Disclosures of Pecuniary Interest

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 in a matter is one where there is a reasonable likelihood or expectation of financial loss or gain of the Member or related persons as per the Act. The onus is on the member to determine whether they are affected by the pecuniary interest provisions. All members must submit their disclosures of pecuniary interest in writing to the Clerk immediately following the meeting during which they verbally disclose a pecuniary interest using the Disclosure of Pecuniary Interest Form.

Changes to the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act require municipalities to maintain a registry of all declarations made under this Act, as of March 1, 2019. The registry must include the original written declaration provided by the member of Council and must be available to the public.

The registry, including the forms submitted by Members of Council will be available by following the link below and will be updated following a Council meeting where an interest is declared.

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