​​​All public office holders are subject to the Conflict of Interest Act's post-employment rules after they leave public office. Additional rules apply to reporting public office holders.

While in office, public office holders must not allow themselves to be influenced in the exercise of an official power, duty or function by plans for, or offers of, outside employment. Before they leave their position, reporting public office holders must also disclose all firm offers of outside employment to the Office of the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner within seven days after receiving them.

There are no post-employment rules in the Conflict of Interest Code for Members of the House of Commons.
