Nurses in Ontario want the province to adopt a minimum ratio of nurses to patients that would mirror a recently passed B.C. policy. An electric vehicle (EV) charging company is hoping Ontario will incentivize low-emissions vehicles by establishing a distinct rate for electricity used for car charging. And after the federal government announced a pause in tax increases for alcohol, an industry association for distillers is lobbying about Alberta’s alcohol regulations. 

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.
