Métis nations in Alberta, Ontario and Saskatchewan are pushing for a federal law that would grant them self-governing rights following protests from the national Assembly of First Nations. The Alberta Medical Association wants more doctors to be hired as the province reorganizes its health-care system. And Canadian landlords and property owners want to have a say in the federal government’s new housing affordability legislation.  

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.
