The national nurses union wants Ontario and Saskatchewan to support a universal national single-payer pharmacare program. A Toronto shelter wants the Ontario government to address rising youth homelessness. And school board trustees want the federal government’s help to get more Indigenous education in schools nationwide.

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.
