Canada’s biggest duck conservation society wants the Ontario government to protect wetlands instead of weakening their environmental protections. Three major agricultural lobby powerhouses want to convince the federal government of their value ahead of a United Nations conference on climate change. And the Anishinabek Nation wants government money to build an Indigenous health treatment centre.

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.
