DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH

FOOD AND DRUGS ACT

Food and Drug Regulations — Amendments

Interim Marketing Authorization

Provision currently exists in the Food and Drug Regulations (the Regulations) for the use of the enzyme amylase, derived from various genetically modified strains of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens, Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus licheniformis, in brewers’ mash, distillers’ mash, starch and bakery products at levels consistent with good manufacturing practice.

Health Canada has received a submission to permit the use of the enzyme amylase derived from a genetically modified Bacilluslicheniformis, Bacillus licheniformis MDT06-228, that carries the gene from Pseudomonas stutzeri IAM1504 coding for this enzyme. This amylase will be used in the production of bread and unstandardized bakery products at levels consistent with good manufacturing practice. Evaluation of available data supports the safety and effectiveness of this amylase derived from Bacillus licheniformis MDT06-228 in these food products.

The use of this amylase derived from this genetically modified micro-organism will benefit the consumer and industry by increasing the availability of bakery products with improved texture and resistance to staling.

Therefore, it is the intention of Health Canada to recommend that the Food and Drug Regulations be amended to permit the use of amylase derived from Bacillus licheniformis MDT06-228 in the production of bread and unstandardized bakery products, such as tortillas, at levels consistent with good manufacturing practice.

As a means to improve the responsiveness of the regulatory system, an Interim Marketing Authorization is being issued to permit the immediate use of amylase derived from the genetically modified micro-organism as indicated above, while the regulatory process is undertaken to amend the Regulations. The standardized foods described above are exempted from the application of sections 6 and 6.1 of the Food and Drugs Act, paragraph B.01.042(c) and section B.16.007 of the Food and Drug Regulations. The unstandardized foods listed above are exempted from paragraph B.01.043 (a) and section B.16.007 of the same Regulations.

The proposed regulatory amendments would be enabling measures to allow the sale of the foods mentioned above that have been manufactured through the use of the enzyme amylase from Bacillus licheniformis MDT06-228. The amendments are supported by the safety assessment and would have low impact on the economy and on the environment. Consequently, the regulatory amendments may proceed directly to final approval and publication in the Canada Gazette, Part II.

Interested persons may make representations, with respect to Health Canada’s intention to amend the Regulations, within 75 days after the date of publication of this notice. All such representations must cite the Canada Gazette, Part I, and the date of publication of this notice, and be addressed to the contact person identified below.

The following is a summary of the official Calls for Bids:

1. Bids will only be accepted in relation to an entire parcel. Any submission of a bid in response to a Call for Bids shall be made on the understanding that the terms and conditions are accepted and agreed to by the bidder.

5. Work proposal bids of less than $1 million for each parcel will not be considered.

6. Each bid must be accompanied by a bid deposit for the specific parcel in the amount of $10 000.

NOTICE OF VACANCY

FRESHWATER FISH MARKETING CORPORATION

Chairperson (part-time position)

The Freshwater Fish Marketing Corporation, a self-sustaining federal Crown corporation created in 1969, is the buyer, processor and marketer of freshwater fish from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, the Northwest Territories, and part of Northwestern Ontario. The Corporation’s mandate is to purchase all fish lawfully fished and offered for sale; to create an orderly market; to promote international markets; to increase fish trade; and to increase returns to fishers. Profits, in the form of final payments, are distributed annually to participating fishers. The Freshwater Fish Marketing Corporation is deemed a parent Crown corporation and reports to Parliament through the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans.

The Board of Trustees has overall stewardship of the Corporation and has a duty to act in the best interests of the Corporation and to exercise care and due diligence. The Chairperson is primarily responsible for the overall leadership of the Board of Directors while providing strategic guidance in the formulation of the vision for the Corporation, building consensus and providing strategic guidance and oversight with regard to the implementation of the vision and policy decisions. He or she ensures corporate governance best practices, including effective Board performance assessment, and along with the CEO, acts as the Corporation’s spokesperson. The Chairperson is the primary liaison with the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans.

The qualified candidate must have a degree from a recognized university in a relevant field of study or a combination of equivalent education, job-related training and/or experience. The preferred candidate should have significant experience serving as a member of a board of directors, preferably as chairperson.

Possessing financial literacy, the selected candidate should also have a good understanding of the roles and responsibilities of a chairperson of a similar-sized organization and of the division of responsibility between a board of directors and management. Knowledge of marketing and of the fishing industry, particularly the freshwater fish sector, would be considered as assets.

The successful candidate will be a person of initiative with strong leadership and managerial skills to ensure the Board conducts its work effectively and should have the capacity to foster debate and discussions among Board members, and to facilitate consensus and manage conflicts, should they arise. In addition to the ability to anticipate emerging issues and develop strategies to enable the Board to seize opportunities and solve problems, the chosen candidate should be able to synthesize and clearly and effectively communicate complex issues. Possessing superior interpersonal skills, sound judgment, tact and diplomacy, the preferred candidate will demonstrate high ethical standards and should have the ability to develop and maintain effective working relationships with Management, the Minister and her office, the Deputy Minister, other relevant senior government officials and the corporation’s business partners and stakeholders. The preferred candidate’s excellent communication skills, both written and oral, will allow him/her to effectively act as spokesperson in dealing with stakeholders, the media, public institutions, governments and other organizations.

Proficiency in both official languages would be an asset.

The successful candidate must be prepared to travel to Board meetings. The Board of Directors meets at intervals fixed by the Board but not less than six times a year. Meetings are held in all of the participating provinces and in the Northwest Territories.

A person who has reached the age of 70 years is not eligible to be appointed a director of the Corporation and a director of the Corporation ceases to hold office upon reaching the age of 70 years.

The Government is committed to ensuring that its appointments are representative of Canada’s regions and official languages, as well as of women, Aboriginal peoples, disabled persons and visible minorities.
