The NRP aims to assist in decision-making to support resilience to disasters such as floods, wildfires, and earthquakes. This reflects the Minister of Emergency Preparedness’ mandate commitment to develop an NRP to inform decision-making and planning. During 2021-22, whole-of-society risk assessment sessions were held to better understand national risks and challenges with respect to floods, wildfires and earthquakes. The initial round of engagement concluded in early 2022, with the second round of engagement with whole-of-society participants starting in Spring 2022. Participants include experts from across all levels of government, academia, and the private sector, in order to produce a whole-of-society picture of disaster risks.

Octenol is a naturally occurring volatile alcohol, produced and released by many species of plants, animals and mushrooms. Octenol is registered as a mosquito attractant for outdoor use only in devices which trap and kill mosquitoes. The domestic end-use products contain octenol in a cartridge which is placed in outdoor insect traps (in other words, devices) to attract mosquitoes. These traps are placed in areas to lure mosquitoes away from where people congregate. Octenol has a non-toxic mode of action and has value in providing a pest management solution. Based on the current use pattern of octenol, occupational and dietary exposure to octenol is not anticipated. The potential residential, bystander, and environmental risks are considered to be acceptable when products containing octenol are used according to proposed label amendments as per current labelling standards. For a full list of products containing octenol, please consult Appendix I in the Proposed Re-evaluation Decision or visit the Pesticide Label Search database. For more information on the proposed decision open the "Proposed Re-evaluation Decision".

Consultation description • The Government of Canada is seeking the views of the Canadian public and interested stakeholders to help define priorities for developing the Canada-Africa Economic Cooperation Strategy (CA-ECS). • The CA-ECS will seek to enhance commercial and economic cooperation relations with African countries and aim to support Canada’s overall goal of increasing and diversifying trade, investment and innovation with African partners. Purpose of the consultation • The Government of Canada is working to develop the CA-ECS, which will contribute meaningfully to Canada’s overall economic, social and environmental priorities. • The consultation process will help ensure the Strategy reflects and takes into account the perspectives of interested stakeholders. It will focus on: • Understanding Canadian private-sector perspectives on economic growth and business potential in Africa; • Identifying sectors and countries or regions that have the greatest potential for Canadian businesses; • Identifying any major obstacles to further trade, investment and innovation from both Canadian and African perspectives, and exploring potential solutions; • Informing the development of effective policy tools; and • Identifying research and innovation areas with potential for future Canadian and African cooperation. Who should participate? This consultation is open to the public and everyone is invited to share their ideas. In particular, we would like to invite input from groups traditionally under-represented in international trade and investment on the potential gender, environmental and social impacts of developing an economic cooperation strategy with Africa. We would like to hear the views of the Canadian public and interested stakeholders including: • businesses, including micro-, small, medium and large-sized enterprises • Canadian private sector, investors and industry leads • industry associations • research, innovation and academic institutions • civil society organizations and non-governmental organizations • African diaspora communities in Canada • provincial, territorial and municipal governments • national, provincial, territorial and regional associations • students and youth • Indigenous groups • gender equality-seeking groups For reasons of confidentiality and security, the submissions and names of contributors to this consultation process will not be released to the public by the Government of Canada.

Background Africa is home to a wide variety of markets, from the advanced economy of South Africa, middle-income countries such as Botswana and Namibia, and coastal countries with strong developing economies characterized by investment-friendly business environments, such as Côte d’Ivoire, Kenya, and Morocco. The growing workforce, rapid urbanization, ongoing improvements in governance, economic management, and stability of many countries underpin their positive economic trajectories. There are also a number of countries with challenging economic environments. The African continent, which includes 20% of the earth’s surface, 60% of the world’s arable land, and 30% of the world’s mineral deposits, including the critical minerals needed in green and digital technologies and renewable energy, has vast economic potential and significant strategic importance. By 2050, Africa will have a population of 2.53 billion people and 1 in 4 people worldwide will be living in Sub-Saharan Africa: it is a growing market that will be home to the youngest population of any continent. African countries are, moreover, essential partners if the world is to achieve its biodiversity and climate mitigation and adaptation goals. The development of a Canada-Africa Economic Cooperation Strategy is timely, particularly as African countries work to implement the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA). Trading under the Agreement has started amongst a limited number of countries, and full implementation is expected by 2035. According to a World Bank report issued in 2020, by 2035 the AfCFTA will boost regional incomes by 7% or $450 billion. Once fully implemented, it will constitute a single market with free movement of goods, services and people, and a combined GDP of $3.4 trillion. Related link: The African Continental Free Trade Area: Economic and Distributional Effects (PDF) Implications for Canada From 2012 to 2022, merchandise exports to Africa have increased by approximately 43%, but still represent only 0.7% of Canada’s total in 2022. In 2021, known Canadian Direct Investment Abroad for Africa was $14.5 billion, while known Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Canada from Africa was $2.1 billion. Africa’s emerging and frontier markets, the anticipated growth in the continent’s economies and consumer markets, and the integrated, rules-based and transparent trade and investment environment that is expected to accompany implementation of the AfCFTA, present opportunities to significantly increase these figures. Canada’s Feminist Foreign Policy supports the advancement of human rights, gender equality, diversity and inclusion both as valuable goals in their own right and as essential conditions for durable peace and security, sustainable economic development, and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Canada’s Feminist International Assistance Policy, notably the Action Area on Growth that Works for Everyone, will continue to guide international assistance programming, offering synergies that support sustainable economic growth and help ensure that the benefits of trade are more widely shared. Research and innovation are also key to building a deeper economic relationship between Canada and Africa. The proposed CA-ECS will strengthen efforts to forge new partnerships between Canadian and African institutions, technologies and businesses to address global challenges of the 21st century such as pandemics, climate change, and inequality.

Exemption orders and basic conditions of service Closed Amendments | Communication | Regulations May 12, 2023 to June 12, 2023 2023-05-12 2023-06-12 Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission On 27 April 2023, the Online Streaming Act came into force. This Act includes, among other things, amendments to the former Broadcasting Act that account for the impact that Internet audio and video services have had on the Canadian broadcasting system. The current Broadcasting Act provides the Commission with clear powers and tools to, among other things, regulate online audio or video undertakings operating in whole or in part in Canada, regardless of their country of origin. Pursuant to the former Broadcasting Act, in order to operate in whole or in part in Canada, a broadcasting undertaking needed to either be licensed or be exempted from the requirement to hold a licence. Online audio and video undertakings were able to operate in Canada pursuant to an exemption order. Pursuant to the current Broadcasting Act, online audio and video undertakings can operate in Canada without a licence or pursuant to an exemption. In this public proceeding, the Commission is examining whether there is a need to amend, replace or repeal the current exemption orders for online audio and video undertakings. It is also examining whether there is a need to transition to new regulatory requirements (conditions of service) that would replace certain of the conditions of exemption that were previously set out in those exemption orders and to whom those conditions of service should apply.

Public Consultation on HIV non-disclosure Closed Justice and the Law Oct 17, 2022 to Jan 13, 2023 2022-10-17 2023-01-13 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.
