A child care company in Ontario is lobbying the federal government about the ratios of staff to children required by the federal affordable child care agreement as the province faces an uphill battle to achieve a $10 daily price tag. A cybersecurity training and certification non-profit wants policies to encourage upskilling and certification programs, like the ones it offers, for tech security professionals as Canada faces increasing threats from cybercrime. And a First Nation in the Northwest Territories hired five lobbyists to decide on an appropriate apology and compensation from Canada over a former gold mine considered one of the most toxic sites in the country.

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.
