Proposal for the Output-Based Pricing System Regulations: chapter 22
Coming into force
The Act permits the regulations to have an effect earlier than the day on which they are made. The regulations cannot have effect before the date on which the Minister publishes a notice announcing the measures to be set out in the regulations.
This notice was given through the publication of the Notice of Intent to Make Regulations under Part 2 of the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act, which was published on December 20, 2018. The regulations will come into force when they are made by the Governor in Council mid-2019 and some provisions may be identified as having retroactive effect to the date of the publication of the Notice of Intent to Make Regulations under Part 2 of the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act in accordance with section 194 of the Act. As specified in the regulations, the first compliance period starts on January 1, 2019 and will end on December 31, 2019 (except that in some territories, it starts on July 1, 2019). The submission of the facility report for that first compliance period will be due on June 1, 2020.
