Public Consultation on HIV non-disclosure Open - accepting input Justice and the Law Oct 1, 2022 to Nov 1, 2022 2022-10-01 2022-11-01 Department of Justice Canada This consultation seeks views on how the criminal law addresses situations where a person living with HIV fails to disclose their HIV status to someone prior to engaging in sexual activity with that person. The Supreme Court of Canada held in R v Mabior that disclosure of HIV status prior to sexual activity was required where there is a realistic possibility of transmission. If there is no realistic possibility of transmission, failure to disclose will not constitute a crime. The Court also noted that a realistic possibility of transmission is negated if (a) viral load is low at the time of sexual relations; and (b) a condom was used. Despite this guidance, the application of the law in this area has been inconsistent. Moreover, there have also been calls to limit the criminal law’s application in this area. The views shared will inform the development of possible criminal law reform in this area.

It will take full advantage of the new Canadian Correctional Services Survey (CCSS) currently being developed. The CCSS will collect microdata on adults and youth under the responsibility of the federal and provincial/territorial correctional systems and is currently implemented in six provinces. Data include socio-demographic characteristics (e.g. age, Indigenous identity) as well as information pertaining to correctional supervision, including admissions and releases by legal hold status (e.g. remand, sentenced, probation). The strategy is being developed in response to growing interest in and demands for information and disaggregated data in order to better understand the experiences of Indigenous and racialized identity groups in terms of their interactions and involvement with correctional systems and the criminal justice system across the country. In this regard, it also aims to better inform decision-making related to criminal justice and correctional policy as well as program design and delivery.

Measurement Canada water meter consultation Closed Environment | Natural resources | Regulations | Rural and remote services | Service | Trade Aug 6, 2021 to Nov 18, 2021 2021-08-06 2021-11-18 Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada Water meters will play a significant role in achieving the Government's environment and climate change objectives. They help households to monitor their water usage. According to a 2009 survey, Canadian households with meters on volume-based water pricing schemes used 73% less water than unmetered households on flat-rate water pricing schemes. Currently, under the Weights and Measures Regulations, water meters, are exempt from requiring approval and initial inspection before they are used to determine a customer’s water consumption (unlike scales, gas pumps and other measuring devices used in trade). To help the Government of Canada achieve its climate change goals and sustain our water supply for future generations, Measurement Canada is looking into possible areas where it could assist manufacturers, utilities and end users (e.g. residential home owners) support and promote water conservation through increased accurate measurement of water. Measurement Canada is consulting with water meter manufacturers, water distribution utilities and water meter end users to obtain data on current water measurement approaches and water meter billing practices in the Canadian marketplace. Our goal is to ensure that water distribution utilities can use measurement to quickly identify and correct water loss in their systems, and that consumers receive accurate and reliable measurement.

Consultation on proposed luxury tax Closed Taxes Aug 10, 2021 to Sept 30, 2021 2021-08-10 2021-09-30 Department of Finance Canada The impact of the COVID recession has been very uneven. Some Canadians have lost their jobs or small businesses, while some sectors of the economy have flourished. That's why it is fair today to ask those Canadians who can afford to buy luxury goods to contribute a little bit more. To that end, the recent budget followed through on the government's commitment to introduce a tax on select luxury goods. The budget proposal would introduce a tax on the sale of new luxury cars and aircraft with a retail sale price over $100,000, and new boats over $250,000. The tax would be calculated at the lesser of 20 per cent of the value above these thresholds ($100,000 for cars and aircraft, $250,000 for boats) or 10 per cent of the full value of the luxury car, boat or aircraft. The tax is proposed to come into force on January 1, 2022. Through this consultation process, the Department of Finance is seeking feedback on the design of the proposed Luxury Tax.
