Environment Canada intends to draft the on-road diesel regulations over the summer. Pending the approval of the Governor in Council, publication in Part I of the Canada Gazette is targeted for the fall of 2001. Publication of the final regulations in Part II of the Canada Gazette would be expected to occur 8 to 10 months later - that is, in the summer or fall of 2002. The Canadian Petroleum Products Institute, on behalf of most Canadian refiners, has indicated that it supports this timing.
