These Ministerial Instructions given by the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration pursuant to subsection 87.3(3) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act are, in accordance with subsection 87.3(6) of that Act, published in the Canada Gazette.

These Ministerial Instructions are given to best support the attainment of the immigration goals established by the Government of Canada and, effective January 1, 2017, replace the Ministerial Instructions regarding the processing of applications to sponsor parents and grandparents as members of the family class, published in Part I of the Canada Gazette on June 15, 2013, and amended by the Ministerial Instructions published in the same publication of the Canada Gazette as these Instructions. These Instructions contribute to a strategy to facilitate family reunification and fulfill the Government of Canada’s commitment to double new application intake to a maximum of 10 000 applications annually.

In these Instructions, “application” means an application for sponsorship of the sponsor’s mother or father, under paragraph 117(1)(c) of the Immigration Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR), or the mother or father of the sponsor’s mother or father, under paragraph 117(1)(d) of the IRPR, as members of the family class.

These Instructions apply only to applications made on or after January 1, 2017.

Annual cap

A maximum of 10 000 new complete applications are accepted for processing each year, unless otherwise indicated in a future Ministerial Instruction.

The cap year begins on January 1 and ends on December 31 of the same calendar year, unless otherwise indicated in a future Ministerial Instruction.

Conditions

In order to be accepted for processing as part of the annual cap of 10 000 applications, an application must be received by the Case Processing Centre in Mississauga, Ontario (CPC-Mississauga) and be completed in accordance with the requirements of the IRPR, including by using the forms provided by the Department of Citizenship and Immigration (Department) in the application package published on the Web site of the Department at the time the application is received by CPC-Mississauga.

Applications are processed in the order they are received.

Humanitarian and compassionate requests

A request made under subsection 25(1) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act from outside Canada and that accompanies an application that was not accepted for processing under these Instructions will not be processed.

Returning of applications

The following applications, and their accompanying processing fee, must be returned to their applicant and that applicant must be informed that their application will not continue to undergo processing:

  • (a) the application that does not meet the conditions set out above; and
  • (b) the application that was not accepted for processing because the annual cap of 10 000 applications has been reached for the cap year in question.
Repeal

The Ministerial Instructions regarding the processing of applications to sponsor parents and grandparents as members of the family class, published in Part I of the Canada Gazette on June 15, 2013, and amended by the Ministerial Instructions published in the same publication of the Canada Gazette as these Instructions, are repealed, effective January 1, 2017.

The National Pollutant Release Inventory — Background information

The NPRI is Canada’s legislated, publicly accessible inventory of pollutant releases, disposals and recycling. It includes information collected from facilities under the authority of section 46 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (the “Act”).

The Act contains information-gathering provisions, which allow the Minister of Environment and Climate Change to require reporting of information on certain substances. The provisions also require the Minister to establish and publish a national inventory of releases of pollutants. These provisions under the Act form the primary legislative basis for the NPRI.

For the latest reporting year, over 7 500 industrial, commercial and other facilities reported to Environment and Climate Change Canada on their releases, disposals and transfers for recycling of more than 300 substances of concern.

The NPRI is a key part of the Government of Canada’s efforts to track toxic substances and other substances of concern. It is a key tool for identifying and monitoring sources of pollution in Canada, as well as for developing indicators for the quality of our air, water and land. Information collected through the NPRI is used for chemicals management initiatives and it is made publicly available to Canadians each year. Public access to the NPRI motivates industry to prevent and reduce pollutant releases. NPRI data helps the Government of Canada to track progress in pollution prevention, evaluate releases and transfers of substances of concern, identify environmental priorities, conduct air quality modelling, and implement policy initiatives and risk management measures.

For more information on the NPRI, including guidance documents, annual summary reports, and access to the NPRI data in a variety of formats, including an online search and databases, please visit the NPRI Web site at http://www.ec.gc.ca/npri.

Input from stakeholders and other interested parties on the NPRI is welcome. Contact information is provided at the beginning of this notice.

Reporting to the National Pollutant Release Inventory

Reporting requirements outlined in this notice are now collected via Environment and Climate Change Canada’s Single Window reporting system (see http://ec.gc.ca/gu-sw for more information).

For those who meet the requirements of this notice, reporting is mandatory. Obtaining the relevant guidance documents is the responsibility of the person required to report under this notice. Visit the NPRI Web site (http://www.ec.gc.ca/npri) or contact Environment and Climate Change Canada at the address provided at the beginning of this notice for guidance documents.

Changes to contacts, ownership and reported information

It is important that contact and ownership information be kept up to date and any errors in submitted data be corrected in a timely manner, so that the information provided by the NPRI continues to be relevant and accurate. Therefore, persons who submitted reports for a previous year are strongly encouraged to update their information, through the Single Window reporting system or by contacting Environment and Climate Change Canada directly, if

  • there has been a change in the name, telephone number, or email address of the contacts identified for the facility since the submission of the report for the previous year;
  • there is a change in the owner or operator of a facility for which a report has been submitted for the previous year; or
  • the person becomes aware that the information submitted for any previous year was mistaken or inaccurate.

If a person is providing an update to previously submitted information, the person should indicate the reason the information is being updated.

Compliance with the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 is mandatory

Compliance with the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (hereinafter referred to as the “Act”) is mandatory pursuant to subsections 272(1) and 272.1(1) of the Act. Amendments to the fine scheme of the Act came into force on June 22, 2012. Subsections 272(2), (3) and (4) and 272.1(2), (3) and (4) of the Act set the penalties for persons who commit an offence under the Act. Offences include failing to comply with an obligation arising from the Act and providing false or misleading information. Penalties for offences can result, upon conviction (either summary conviction or indictment), in fines of not more than $12 million, imprisonment for a term of not more than three years, or both.

The current text of the Act, including the most recent amendments, is available on the Department of Justice Canada’s Web site: http://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts/C-15.31.

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH

CONTROLLED DRUGS AND SUBSTANCES ACT

Notice to interested parties — Proposal regarding the scheduling of methylphenidate under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and its regulations

This notice provides interested stakeholders with the opportunity to provide comments on Health Canada’s intent to pursue amendments to Schedule III to the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA) in order to expand the scope of the scheduling entry for methylphenidate and its salts to include its isomers, derivatives and analogues, as well as salts of the derivatives, isomers and analogues. In addition, these substances will be added to the Schedule to Part J of the Food and Drug Regulations (FDR).

Methylphenidate is a stimulant currently listed with its salts in Schedule III to the CDSA. While methylphenidate has some abuse potential, methylphenidate is also used in the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy.

In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the emergence of new psychoactive substances that mimic the effects of controlled substances, but are created to circumvent existing drug legislation. Several substances related to methylphenidate have been identified as new psychoactive substances with similar effects to methylphenidate, but with no approved therapeutic uses. Such substances currently known to be present in Canada are ethylphenidate; isopropylphenidate; 3,4 dichloromethylphenidate; methylnaphthidate; propylphenidate; ethylnaphthidate and 4-methylmethylphenidate.

Health Canada is proposing to amend Schedule III to the CDSA by expanding the listing of methylphenidate and its salts to include its derivatives, isomers, and analogues, as well as salts of the derivatives, isomers and analogues. In the interest of clarity, a list of the specific substances currently known to be present in Canada would also be included.

Activities with methylphenidate and its salts are authorized under Part G to the FDR, where they are scheduled as controlled drugs. However, as the derivatives, isomers and analogues of methylphenidate (as well as salts of derivatives, isomers and analogues) have no approved therapeutic uses, Health Canada is proposing to list them under Part J to the FDR. Research or scientific use of these substances could be authorized under Part J of the FDR.

The publication of this notice in the Canada Gazette, Part I, initiates a 30-day comment period. Anyone interested in this process or having comments on this notice should contact Legislative and Regulatory Affairs, Controlled Substances Directorate, Healthy Environments and Consumer Safety Branch, Health Canada by mail at Address Locator: 0302A, 150 Tunney’s Pasture Driveway, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0K9, or by email at ocs_regulatorypolicy-bsc_politiquereglementaire@hc-sc.gc.ca.
