Enbridge wants to send Canadian energy to Europe, and Natural Resources Minister Jonathan Wilkinson wants to help. For-profit companies are jockeying for a piece of the Ontario healthcare privatization pie. And controversial forestry giant Paper Excellence is registering new lobbyists after Wilkinson said he’d make sure the company follows the law.

Those are just some of the insights from the IJF’s first roundup of lobbying registrations at the federal level and in every province across Canada. Every week the IJF will publish 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.
