How it works

Federal departments and agencies give interested groups, individuals and all Canadians the chance to review and comment on proposed regulations before they are enacted.

Proposed regulations are published in Part I of the Canada Gazette. Once enacted, they are published in Part II.

You can learn more about this consultation phase in the Cabinet Directive on Regulatory Management.
