Lobbyists with Progressive Conservative Party connections are asking the government to expedite real estate developments as Ontario’s auditor general slams Doug Ford over the Greenbelt controversy. Also this week, geothermal energy companies started lobbying the government for more tax credits. And, a company with access to the world’s largest uranium deposits started lobbying in Alberta.

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.
