Wild Animal and Plant Trade Regulations

Regulation

Wild Animal and Plant Trade Regulations

Enabling Act

Wild Animal and Plant Protection and Regulation of International and Interprovincial Trade Act

Rationale for the review

The Wild Animal and Plant Trade Regulations (WAPTR) were implemented in 1996. The Regulations have been amended many times since being implemented in order to reflect changes to the list of protected species made by various Conferences of the Parties (CoP) to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). However, no comprehensive review has been undertaken since the regulations came into force.

Approach to the review

The Department intends to consult with stakeholders and Canadians in the winter 2021 on the proposed amendments to modernize WAPTR. A Notice of Intent will be published in the Canada Gazette, Part I and emails will be sent out to known stakeholders. The consultation document will be accessible through the Government of Canada website.

Additionally, Canadians will also have the opportunity to provide comments on the proposed modernized regulations, which are targeting pre-publication in the Canada Gazette Part I in fall 2021 for a 30-day public comment period.

Chromium Electroplating, Chromium Anodizing and Reverse Etching Regulations

Regulation

Chromium Electroplating, Chromium Anodizing and Reverse Etching Regulations

Enabling Act

Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999

Rationale for the review

The Chromium Electroplating, Chromium Anodizing and Reverse Etching Regulations came into force in 2009 to address air releases of hexavalent chromium from the chromium metal finishing industry.

Amendments completed in 2020 focused on administrative changes which addressed concerns raised by the Standing Joint Committee for the Scrutiny of Regulations. Emissions limits are no longer reflective of best practices and international standards. Phase II amendments will update release limits, provide the industry with more flexibility in meeting requirements and reduce administrative burden to industry and government.

Approach to the review

The department will release a pre-consultation document following-up on consultations with industry in 2014 and 2017.

It is anticipated that this document will be shared with stakeholders and Indigenous groups in spring 2021.

The document will highlight key components of the regulations expected to be amended, proposals for the amendments and request feedback from interested groups.

Federal Halocarbon Regulations, 2003

Regulation

Federal Halocarbon Regulations, 2003

Enabling Act

Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999

Rationale for the review

The Federal Halocarbon Regulations (FHR) 2003 were published in 2003 and minor amendments were made in 2009 to address comments and recommendations of the Standing Joint Committee for the Scrutiny of Regulations. These amendments did not change the intent or scope of the FHR 2003. Although the Regulations do not include a requirement for mandatory review, the Department has already initiated the process to amend the FHR 2003. In line with the objectives of the regulatory stock review, the Department concluded on the need to amend the FHR in order to enhance the effectiveness of the Regulations. Amendments being considered will also reduce administrative burden, remove incorporation by reference that is no longer applicable, fix enforceability issues, remove obsolete provisions, and modernize the scope and framework of the Regulations.

The revised Regulations would repeal and replace the FHR 2003 (for more information please see the Forward Regulatory Plan).

Approach to the review

A comprehensive review of the FHR 2003 was initiated in 2013. Two rounds of consultations were conducted in 2013 and 2017. The invitation to participate in the consultation was extended to all known regulatees. Feedback obtained was included in the proposed modifications to the FHR 2003.

Date of last review or amendment

Migratory Birds Regulations

Regulation

Migratory Birds Regulations

Enabling Act

Migratory Birds Convention Act, 1994

Rationale for the review

Since being implemented in 1918, the Migratory Bird Regulations (MBR) have been amended many times, often with isolated changes or fixes being made to deal with specific issues. They have never been subjected to a comprehensive review. As a result, the current regulatory text and structure, which contains errors and inconsistencies, is complex, outdated, lacks clarity and does not meet current legal standards. These issues can in turn lead to difficulty in their interpretation, in their application, in ensuring stakeholder compliance, as well as lead to issues in enforcing the Regulations.

In 1995, the Migratory Birds Convention was amended by what is known in Canada as the Parksville Protocol. Significantly, the Protocol recognized the existing Aboriginal and treaty rights of the Aboriginal people of Canada under section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982, with respect to harvesting migratory birds and their eggs. These amendments have not yet been implemented into the MBRs.

A final issue is that the MBRs are not in line with many of the current departmental policy directions, particularly in the area of migratory game bird hunting management and nest protection. As a result, many issues and concerns, some going back over 30 years, have been repeatedly raised by stakeholders regarding the need for regulatory clarity, for the removal of irritants or burden that do not provide conservation value, and for the introduction of concepts and measures to improve migratory bird management in Canada.

Approach to the review

The first phase of pre-Canada Gazette Part I consultation occurred in 2013-14 primarily with hunting organizations, hunters and Indigenous partners to discuss the key amendments being considered.

Additional pre-consultations occurred in 2017 regarding bait authorizations.

The publication of the proposed regulations in the Canada Gazette Part I was followed by an initial 60 day comment period, which was extended to 4 months.

Date of last review or amendment

The regulations have never undergone a comprehensive review.

Last comprehensive amendment in the 1990s.

Schedule I of the regulations was previously amended annually, and more recently on a biennial basis. The Schedule has never undergone a comprehensive review.

ECCC has recently conducted a comprehensive review of the Regulations, and pre-published proposed amendments in Canada Gazette Part I on June 1, 2019.

Targeted completion date for review

December 31, 2021

Status of review

Review is ongoing

Work has been ongoing to develop the final revised Migratory Birds Regulations, which are anticipated to be published in 2021.

Stakeholder feedback

Comments were received from Indigenous partners and stakeholders on the regulatory proposal published in the Canada Gazette Part I. Environment and Climate Change Canada is carefully considering all input provided in the development of the final regulations.

New Substances Notification Regulations (Organisms)

Regulation

New Substances Notification Regulations (Organisms)

Enabling Act

Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999

Rationale for the review

The regulations have not undergone a comprehensive review and amendment since they were promulgated. The most recent amendments in 2018 addressed comments from the Standing Joint Committee for the Scrutiny of Regulations by adding a mechanism to exempt agricultural field trials using microorganisms.

Approach to the review

While the primary objective of this review is to ensure the regulations keep pace with scientific advances, secondary objectives are to reduce regulatory burden, and ensure competitiveness while maintaining protection of human health and the environment.

Date of last review or amendment

Last amendment 2018

Targeted completion date for review

December 31, 2021

Status of review

Review Ongoing:

The New Substances Program (NSP) continues to identify and analyze, in collaboration with partners across ECCC and in Health Canada, regulatory gaps and areas requiring improvement.

Stakeholder feedback

To date, stakeholder input has been received via Round Two of the Targeted Regulatory Review Process, the Standing Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development review of CEPA (completed in 2017), and stakeholder submissions to the Regulatory Cooperation Council.

Stakeholders have suggested that greater alignment of Canada’s biotechnology regulatory system would be helpful.

Stakeholders have also urged the federal government to reduce the regulatory burden associated with the notification process under the NSNR(O).

Further stakeholder engagement opportunities will be organized, as well as by responding to email requests for input.

Pulp and Paper Effluent Regulations

Regulation

Pulp and Paper Effluent Regulations

Enabling Act

Fisheries Act

Rationale for the review

The most recent comprehensive review of Pulp and Paper Effluent Regulations (PPER) was completed in the early 1990s. Despite high self-reported compliance, environmental effect monitoring (EEM) studies demonstrate that some pulp and paper effluent continues to adversely affect fish and fish habitat.

The pulp and paper sector is undergoing significant changes as a result of the development of new bio-products.

Modernizing the PPER could strengthen environmental protections, address the transformation of the pulp and paper industry, clarify requirements and streamline regulatees’ burden.

See Forward Regulatory Plan for more details about the proposed amendments.

Approach to the review

ECCC has launched an initiative to modernize the PPER.

The objectives include strengthening environmental protections, address the transformation of the pulp and paper industry, clarify requirements and streamline regulatees’ burden.

The second phase of pre-Canada Gazette consultation was launched in May 2019 with the publication of a detailed proposal followed byconsultation sessions with provinces, indigenous communities and environmental non-governmental organizations (ENGOs).

Date of last review or amendment

Last review 1994

Last amendment 2018

Targeted completion date for review

TBD

Status of review

Review delayed

To reduce the burden on stakeholders during the COVID-19 pandemic period, ECCC has suspended public consultations on this initiative. The situation will be reassessed in the coming months.

At this time, the Department does not have a specific target date for publishing proposed regulations.

Stakeholder feedback

The main concern from industry was related to the stringency of the proposed effluent limits.

Additional feedback may be gathered through future consultations.

Secondary Lead Smelter Release Regulations

Regulation

Secondary Lead Smelter Release Regulations

Enabling Act

Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999

Rationale for the review

The Secondary Lead Smelter Release Regulations (SLSRR) were published in 1976. The regulations limit the concentration of particulate matter and lead emitted into the ambient air from secondary lead smelting facilities. Over the years, the number of secondary lead smelters in Canada has dropped from 51 in 1984 to 4 in 2019. The four facilities currently account for a small portion of lead emissions in comparison with the broader base metals smelting sector. Since 2006, the Department has developed instruments (Pollution Prevention Plans and Environmental Performance Agreements) to address emissions of lead from the broader base metals smelting sector. Additionally, the SLSRR pose a number of challenges related to enforceability, and monitoring and reporting requirements.

Approach to the review

An internal ECCC working group was established to gather supporting data and information relevant to the review. In addition, outreach to provinces, industry, and indigenous groups was undertaken to inform them of the review and to request additional technical and regulatory information. This information will be used to inform what action to take on the SLSRR (repeal, amend, etc).

Date of last review or amendment

Last review 1994

Last amendment 1999

Targeted completion date for review

March 31, 2022

Status of review

Review Ongoing.

A consultation plan was developed and implemented:

Industry: A technical questionnaire was developed and sent to lead facilities.

Indigenous Peoples: An engagement session was held by teleconference to inform Indigenous groups on the status of the SLSRR review.

Provinces & Municipalities: A request on existing regulations for lead facilities has been sent to 3 provinces and 2 municipalities.

The next step is to determine what action to take on the SLSRR.

Stakeholder feedback

Most of the facilities from the lead industry sector responded to the technical questionnaire. The findings are that some technical elements of the SLSRR are outdated and do not fully reflect current industry terminology and practices. The feedback from provinces and municipalities shows that the secondary lead sector is regulated at the provincial and municipal levels. The indigenous peoples (2 First Nations participated in the teleconference) expressed concern regarding general and historic contamination issues due to lead emissions from the secondary lead and other sectors. No further engagement on the SLSRR review was requested by the FN groups.

Storage Tank Systems for Petroleum Products and Allied Petroleum Products Regulations

Regulation

Storage Tank Systems for Petroleum Products and Allied Petroleum Products Regulations

Enabling Act

Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999

Rationale for the review

The Storage Tank Systems for Petroleum Products and Allied Petroleum Products Regulations have been in place since 2008 and include numerous references to technical standards. A review of the Regulations is needed to ensure that these referenced standards are still relevant and allow for flexibility as new technologies emerge, while ensuring protection of the environment from leaks or spills of petroleum products and allied petroleum products.

Approach to the review

A complete review of the requirements is being conducted. The regulations apply to systems located on federal and aboriginal lands. Consultations with stakeholders will be undertaken to seek feedback on issues that have arisen with the implementation of the regulations. In addition, ECCC will collaborate with Standards Organizations and industry to ensure that the appropriate standards (version and scope) are referenced in the regulations. The review will assess current requirements and determine whether additional controls are needed to achieve good environmental objectives.

Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Concentration Limits for Architectural Coatings Regulations

Regulation

Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Concentration Limits for Architectural Coatings Regulations

Enabling Act

Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999

Rationale for the review

The Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Concentration Limits for Architectural Coatings Regulations were published in 2009. These regulations were based on the Ozone Transport Commission (north-east US states) regulatory requirements in force at the time. Since publication of ECCC’s regulations, regulatory limits in a number of U.S. states have been revised downward and many products in the Canadian market now have significantly lower VOC concentrations than the current regulatory limits. As such, ECCC is considering amending the regulations to reflect the current North American technology and market availability to achieve additional VOC reductions.

In addition, modifications to the one litre exemption are also being considered to preclude the misuse of this exemption to circumvent regulatory requirements by selling small containers in bundles.

Approach to the review

A study reviewing the regulatory limits was completed in the 2019-2020 fiscal year.

In 2021, ECCC will consult external stakeholders to inform the regulatory review.

Date of last review or amendment

Never been reviewed

Last amendment 2018

Targeted completion date for review

March 31, 2022

Status of review

ECCC completed the internal review of the regulations in 2020.

ECCC will consult external stakeholders in the Spring of 2021. A discussion document will be posted on the Department’s Environmental Registry for comments. Canadian stakeholders, including other federal departments, provinces, territories, Indigenous groups and organizations, industry, environmental groups and public advocacy groups will be consulted.

Wildlife Area Regulations

Regulation

Wildlife Area Regulations

Enabling Act

Canada Wildlife Act

Rationale for the review

Since coming into force in 1977, the Wildlife Area Regulations (The Regulations) have been amended a number of times, however, they have never been subject to a comprehensive review and update. The result is that the Regulations contained some inconsistencies with other federal environmental regulations and were not completely aligned with other federal environmental regulations which came into force after 1977. Many provisions that were also outdated or lacked clarity, and it contained language that was in need of further details and increased transparency.

A number of challenges with respect to the provisions regarding the management of National Wildlife Areas (NWAs) have also been identified, specifically with the provisions relating to the use of notices to authorize activities which would otherwise be prohibited under the Regulations.

Updates to the legal descriptions of existing NWAs are also needed as some have not been updated in over 30 years. Although new NWAs have been added to Schedule I of the Regulations since 1977, in some cases additional lands have been acquired by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), to be added to existing NWAs, but have not yet been designated as NWA lands through the Regulations. In other cases, the boundary description no longer matched updated legal or cadastral frameworks in certain jurisdictions, or errors had been identified in the boundary descriptions.

Approach to the review

The first phase of pre-Canada Gazette pre-consultations occurred in 2017 including hunting / trapping associations, Inuit Boards and Councils, Inuit Regional Associations, bird clubs, environmental non-governmental organizations, tourism associations, universities provincial / territorial governments, other federal departments and individual Canadians.

The publication of the proposed Regulations in the Canada Gazette Part I in 2019 was followed by an initial 30 day comment period, and was extended to 4 months to accommodate stakeholders.

The amended Regulations were published in the Canada Gazette, part II on December 9, 2020.

Date of last review or amendment

Schedule I of the Regulations had been amended at various times to add new NWAs.

The regulations had never been comprehensively amended.

ECCC conducted a comprehensive review of the Regulations, pre-published proposed amendments in Canada Gazette Part I on June 1, 2019 and published the final amended Regulations in Canada Gazette, Part II on December 9, 2020.

Targeted completion date for review

Completed on December 9, 2020.

Status of review

Review is completed

Work has been ongoing to develop the final revised Wildlife Area Regulations, which was finalized and published on December 9, 2020.

Stakeholder feedback

Comments were received from Indigenous partners and stakeholders on the regulatory proposal published in the Canada Gazette Part I. Environment and Climate Change Canada has carefully considered all input provided in the development of the final Regulations.

Outcomes
