As the federal government offers billions in subsidies to electric vehicle battery manufacturers, Toyota wants more funds to go to hydrogen-powered vehicle infrastructure.

And British Columbia’s capital city wants to know more about funds earmarked in the federal budget for municipalities and First Nations to fight the toxic drug crisis.

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.
