The owners of Toronto’s downtown airport want to discuss their land lease with the federal government one decade before it expires. The Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions wants Doug Ford to address the exodus of members leaving the profession. And Ehattesaht First Nation wants the federal government to fund its salmon operations while Fisheries Canada delays consultation on the future of open-net farming.

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.
