The parent company of photo sharing social media app SnapChat wants to discuss its responsibilities under Canada’s proposed legislation to protect youth online. An animal welfare charity wants the Alberta government to fund a shift away from rodeo events at the Calgary Stampede. And municipalities on the front lines of climate change response want more federal funding for climate-related policies and initiatives.

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.
