Gambling operators want a seat at the table for a bill that gives First Nations sole control of casinos on their land. Canadian airports’ biggest lobby group wants to discuss new federal legislation that would impose new performance standards on its members. And a group of prominent accessibility advocates wants to talk with federal officials about how the climate crisis will affect the one in five Canadians that live with a disability.

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.
