Counsellors and psychotherapists in B.C. are renewing decades-long calls for the province to regulate their profession. Streaming giant Netflix is extolling the economic benefits it brings to Alberta after it signed a three-year deal with Calgary film and TV unions. And the Canadian Red Cross (CRC) wants to further discussions about an “integrated partnership” with the Ontario government for emergency response as extreme weather events are expected to get worse with climate change. 

Those are just some of the insights from the IJF’s roundup of lobbying registrations at the federal level and in every province across Canada. Each week, the IJF publishes data from our four lobbying databases showing who wants laws changed and who is asking for government money. Think of it as your weekly dose of public policy news before it becomes news.
