Publication and Deadline Schedule

Participate in our satisfaction survey.

Part I

If your notice is six pages or less, we must receive it before 12 noon (Eastern Time) six business days prior to the date of publication. For 2017–2018 publication dates and related deadlines, see the Publication Deadline Schedule for Part I.

If your notice is more than six pages, please make special arrangements well in advance of the publication date with the Manager, Canada Gazette, Part I, by telephone at 613-995-3206.

Part I is published every Saturday but is available on the Canada Gazette Web site as of 2 p.m. Friday.

Part II

While the Canada Gazette Directorate is responsible for the editing and publishing of Part II, the Treasury Board Secretariat (TB) and the Privy Council Office (PCO) determine the content of the publication as well as the related deadlines.

Regulations and other regulatory texts that require the approval of the Governor in Council must be submitted at a TB meeting and approved prior to being published in the Canada Gazette, Part II. Departments and agencies must therefore submit the regulations and all necessary documents to PCO’s Orders in Council Division, which will add them to a TB meeting agenda depending on the date on which the documents are received. Bulletins containing the TB meeting dates are available semi-annually from your departmental regulatory coordinator.

To learn more about the deadlines for submitting documents at a TB meeting, please consult the Guide to the Federal Regulatory Process.

Part II is published every other Wednesday and is available on the Canada Gazette Web site at 9 a.m. on the day of its publication.

Publication and Deadline Calendar

For your ease of reference, the Canada Gazette Directorate prepares each year a calendar indicating the publication dates for Part I and Part II, the deadlines for submitting notices for Part I, as well as the statutory holidays.
