Consultation

Your comments and input play an important part in Canada's regulatory process. Do you have an opinion on the types of controls that should be put in place to safeguard the environment, the foods you eat, or the drugs you buy? These are just some of the many regulations that affect the daily lives of Canadians.

The Regulatory Policy requires that federal departments and agencies demonstrate that Canadians have been consulted and that they have had an opportunity to participate in developing or modifying regulations and regulatory programmes.

Pre-publication in Part I of the Canada Gazette gives various interested groups and individuals, as well as Canadians in general, a final opportunity to review and comment on a proposed regulation at the last stages of the regulation-making process, before it is enacted and published in Part II of the Canada Gazette.

Pre-publication also gives interested parties, those stakeholders previously consulted at the beginning of the regulatory process, the opportunity to see how the final draft proposal is in keeping with previous consultation drafts.
