The Lobby Monitor
The Lobby Monitor, part of the Hill Times Publishing group, is the leading news source on Canada's lobbying business. We provide exclusive coverage on who is influencing top decision makers on the federal scene and beyond.
We are a subscriber service that provides daily news and analysis about the strategies and people behind public policy advocacy, issues management, government relation campaigns and procurement in Canada.
We bring readers timely, in-depth and independent coverage of new lobbying strategies, keep a keen eye on who's who in the industry and government, and follow lobbying registrations, communication reports and events on and off the Hill.
The Lobby Monitor was launched in 1989, the same year as the federal lobbyists' registry, by John Chenier and Sean Moore. Hill Times Publishing purchased the news service in November 2011, launching a new website with email alerts and a weekly electronic edition delivered directly to subscribers. John Chenier remains The Lobby Monitor's Editor Emeritus.
