The amendment repeals section 3 of the Consular Fees (Specialized Services) Regulations, as well as paragraph 16(a) and section 22 of the Schedule to the Regulations. Section 2 of the Regulations is being amended to include a specialized service that is provided by a consular officer or locally engaged employee both at a mission and elsewhere.
Description and rationale
All amendments to the Regulations are made in response to comments received from the Standing Joint Committee for the Scrutiny of Regulations.
The Standing Joint Committee for the Scrutiny of Regulations has the authority to review and scrutinize statutory instruments permanently referred to it pursuant to section 19 of the Statutory Instruments Act. This authority is derived from its status as a subordinate entity of the Senate and House of Commons and its powers are conferred by the Rules of the Senate of Canada and the Standing Orders of the House of Commons.
