An association for major music labels that represent names like Taylor Swift, Celine Dion and The Beatles wants Ottawa to do more to protect copyrighted work under the new artificial intelligence (AI) bill. An air ambulance service in Alberta wants to talk with the province about its funding as major changes are expected to shake up the province’s health care in the coming months. And a natural gas company wants the federal minister of energy and natural resources to approve its pipeline project despite some opposition from local Indigenous groups.

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.
