Canada's largest petroleum refiner wants to talk to Doug Ford about its struggles reducing toxic emissions at two of its industrial plants. A private for-profit university wants to talk with federal officials about foreign students as the government explores a cap. And the Breakfast Club of Canada wants to offer Indigenous communities up north logistical support so they can access more affordable food.

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.
