Registry of Disclosures of Pecuniary Interest

The Municipal Conflict of Interest Act (https://www.ontario.ca/laws/statute/90m50) requires members 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 individual or related persons as per the Act. The onus to declare a pecuniary interest rests with the member. It is required that all members submit disclosures of pecuniary interest in writing to the Clerk as well as make a verbal declaration at the meeting.
