Private and public post-secondary institutions want to talk to provincial and federal governments about new limits on international student visas. A Texas-based gasoline company that develops “renewable diesel” registered to lobby Alberta Premier Danielle Smith after she called a federal electric vehicle mandate “unworkable.” And a pro-choice advocacy group wants the federal government to compel Ontario and New Brunswick to fully fund all abortions whether they’re done in hospitals or private clinics. 

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.
