An association representing movie theatres wants to work with Public Safety Canada to ensure employees are protected in light of recent shootings at cinemas showing a popular South Indian film. The government of Alberta passed a law to expand online betting, and now an advocacy group wants to make sure the new regime includes policies to prevent problem gambling. And Photoshop maker Adobe wants to discuss changes to Canadian copyright laws related to artificial intelligence, after it introduced its own image generation service. 

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.
