An electric vehicle battery company registered to lobby the federal government days before announcing plans to hire hundreds of workers from abroad, angering Conservatives. Energy storage companies want Natural Resources Canada to make it easier to build green infrastructure in Atlantic Canada. And a national labour union wants more information on Ontario’s research into benefits that follow workers from job to job.  

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.
