Tim Raybould Career
Raybould acted as chief negotiator for the Westbank First Nation for 12 years before hanging out his shingle as president of the Kalona Group in 1998, according to his profile on the LinkedIn business networking site.
Back in 2016, his wife, Jody Wilson was facing criticism of his decision to register as a lobbyist shortly after the October 2015 federal election. Raybould worked in a private company, called the KaLoNa Group, specializing in consulting work relating to self-government issues until before his wife started serving as Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada in the cabinet of Justin Trudeau back in 2015.
KaLoNa is a “consulting firm providing negotiation support, policy advice and educational services primarily to First Nations governments, institutions, and associations.”
He hadn’t been on the federal lobbyist registry since early 2011, but he filed in late January 2016 on behalf of two clients who were the self-governing Westbank First Nation in the Kelowna area, a longtime KaLoNa client which is one of B.C.’s wealthiest bands, and the First Nations Finance Authority, a not-for-profit based at Westbank that provides loans and financial advice to First Nations.
An ethics expert said Tim Raybould should shed his lobbying activities since continuation would violate both the Conflict of Interest Act and Trudeau’s own guidelines for ministers.
Raybould currently offers a wide range of services to First Nation governments, institutions “and other organizations related to public administration and policy development,” including “research, training, facilitation and mediation, negotiation support and intergovernmental relations.”

Jody Wilson-Raybould is refusing to vacate the entire suite of Parliament Hill offices she was assigned as a cabinet minister, despite the fact that she is now an Independent MP and is no longer entitled to space as per a CBC News report published on December 12th, 2019.
Wilson-Raybould and her small staff who currently occupy a series of six offices equipped with a private bathroom on the fourth floor of the Confederation Building in Ottawa — a suite she was assigned when she was a minister and had a larger staff complement.

Such office suites are in short supply. The Liberals requested the use of the ministerial suite now occupied by Wilson-Raybould for one of their newly appointed ministers. Wilson-Raybould has yet to leave. “It seems a little bit petty to me,” Wilson-Raybould told CBC News. “It makes no sense to remove me from my MP office. So I don’t understand why they’re wanting to do it.”
