Part 9 of the Act provides the authority to make regulations, objectives, guidelines and codes of practice that apply to departments, boards and agencies of the Government of Canada; federal works and undertakings; federal land; Aboriginal land; persons on that land and other persons insofar as their activities involve that land; and Crown corporations.

On March 20, 2010, Environment Canada proposed Wastewater Systems Effluent Regulations under the Fisheries Act in the Canada Gazette, Part I, as the federal government's principal instrument to implement the Canada-wide Strategy for the Management of Municipal Wastewater Effluents endorsed by the CCME in February 2009. The proposed regulations include baseline effluent quality standards, compliance timelines, and rules for monitoring and reporting. They would apply to municipal, community and federal wastewater systems, including those on Aboriginal lands across Canada, except, initially, those in far northern regions.

On August 19, 2010, the Regulations Amending the Federal Halocarbon Regulations, 2003 were published in the Canada Gazette, Part II. These regulations consist of amendments that are administrative in nature and do not change the intent or scope of the Federal Halocarbon Regulations, 2003.
