April 10, 1989 - National network of lobbyists
The Social Science Federation of Canada and the Canadian Federation for the Humanities lobby the government for years to increase representation and protect against funding cuts. By 1989, however, the Federations need to synchronise and centralize a lobbying strategy. As a result, on April 10 the National Lobbyist Network meets for the first time to discuss how members will petition Members of Parliament in each region. The new strategy utilizes research strategies, profiles MPs, and increases information distributed to members about lobbying efforts.
