Government News Releases

Today’s tip is about watching what the government is doing. News releases by government bodies often contain information that is not yet posted to other sites. This was recently brought home to me by an Alberta Government news release about a future regulatory change as well as a Government of Canada news release about the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Especially with regard to regulatory changes in the provinces, news releases about issues may pre-date actual legislative authority for an action.

Check out the Canada News Centre or your provincial or territorial government website’s news page. Most jurisdictions offer RSS feeds for monitoring.
