A property owner that owes millions of dollars in terminated housing contracts to Alberta seniors is assuring the government it will comply with the province’s new consumer protection bill for housing contracts. A union for Canadian defence workers wants the government to better track the presence of asbestos in federally owned buildings. And advocacy group Environmental Defence wants to help design the federal public transit program to double transit ridership by 2035 and reduce carbon emissions.  

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.
