A coalition of blockchain and NFT companies is looking for tax credits for crypto mining. Also, a Canadian bitcoin app is casting a wide lobbying net in search of favorable regulation. And a major battery manufacturer has hired new lobbyists as it prepares to build a gigafactory factory in Quebec.

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.
