One of the biggest fashion retailers in the world is lobbying about a Canadian law to prevent child labour. An organization supporting people experiencing infertility wants to give input as B.C. develops its program to pay for the first round of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) for those who are eligible, starting next April. An Inuit-led energy company wants federal funding for its project to bring renewable power and fibre-optic internet to Nunavut for the first time.

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.
