Proposed regulatory amendments to allow for automatic invalidation of certain immigration documents following an enforceable removal order Open - accepting input Immigration | Policy June 3, 2019 to July 3, 2019 2019-06-03 2019-07-03 Canada Border Services Agency The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) is responsible for enforcing the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (the Act), which governs the admissibility of foreign nationals and permanent residents to Canada. Following the notice placed on the CBSA Forward Regulatory Plan for 2018 to 2020 and 2019 to 2021, the CBSA is developing proposed amendments to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR) to automatically invalidate temporary resident visas (TRVs), electronic travel authorizations (eTAs) and temporary resident permits (TRPs) by operation of law when the holder of the document has been issued a removal order that becomes enforceable. In the case of TRPs, this proposal will only apply when a removal order becomes enforceable subsequent to the issuance of the TRP and this proposal will not impact the foreign nationals issued TRPs following the issuance of an enforceable removal order, unless there is a subsequent enforceable removal order. Consequential amendments and other amendments required to maintain consistency in the IRPR may be pursued in addition. Paragraph 53(e) of the IRPA provides the authority to create regulations in respect of ‘the effect and enforcement of removal orders’, permitting the invalidation of eTAs, TRVs and TRPs as an effect of a removal order becoming enforceable. The following details describe the specifics of this proposal: • These regulatory amendments will apply to all types of removal orders. • Invalidation of eTAs, TRVs and TRPs will only occur upon a removal order issued against the holder becoming enforceable. • These regulatory amendments will be applied retrospectively. Consequently, holders of valid eTAs, TRVs and TRPs who became inadmissible and were issued enforceable removal orders prior to the coming into force of these regulations will also have their eTA, TRV or TRP invalidated. These regulatory changes will create a consistency with the current automatic invalidation regulations for work and study permits that exist when removal orders become enforceable, which have been provided for since the IRPR came into force in 2002. These changes promote program integrity and streamline the admissibility determination process, by making invalidation of eTAs, TRVs and TRPs an effect of an enforceable removal order. To help inform this process, the CBSA is embarking on a public consultation process to give all interested stakeholders an opportunity to provide input.

This pan-western growth strategy will help set the foundation to ensure that the unique regional economies in western Canada continue to grow and flourish by: • identifying shared priorities to grow the economy • increasing collaboration with those who make a difference in our economy, such as business, industry, academia, First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities and organizations, and different levels of government • engaging western Canadians to identify and drive economic growth opportunities The federal government is working with business, industry, academia, Indigenous communities and organizations, and different levels of government, to help develop a truly "Made-in-Western-Canada" growth strategy. This strategy not only reflects the unique regional advantages of each province, but also helps to stimulate economic growth. The proposed approach is to develop a strategy in three phases: • Phase One: public, Indigenous groups, and stakeholder engagement to shape and inform the development of the strategy; • Phase Two: strategy development to outline the economic pillars of the strategy; and, • Phase Three: implementation of collaborative initiatives within these economic growth pillars. The strategy will identify and connect shared priorities amongst multiple public and private organizations to stimulate economic growth, create jobs, drive innovation in the west, and serve as a framework for ongoing actions. Both the engagement and strategy development look at a whole–of-government (federal and provincial) approach to working with partners on economic growth opportunities in the west. The engagement process will explore topics such as: • Economic priorities in Western Canada, including challenges and opportunities • Increasing economic participation of Indigenous groups, women, and youth • Collaborative opportunities between all levels of government What We Heard Report available

Draft technical changes to the Goods and Services Tax/Harmonized Sales Tax (GST/HST) rules for sales of carbon emission allowances Closed Amendments | Taxes June 27, 2018 to July 27, 2018 2018-06-27 2018-07-27 Department of Finance Canada The Department of Finance Canada released draft technical changes to the Goods and Services Tax/Harmonized Sales Tax (GST/HST) rules for sales of carbon emission allowances. Effective June 27, 2018, the purchaser of carbon emission allowances is responsible for self-assessing any GST/HST payable. This replaces the previous requirement whereby the seller collected the tax from the purchaser and remitted it to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). This does not affect the imposition of the GST/HST, but rather how it is accounted for and remitted. It also brings the Canadian rules in line with how these allowances are treated internationally. These technical changes will generally apply only to the secondary market of carbon pollution pricing instruments. The initial supply of emission allowances by a Canadian government entity generally remains exempt from the GST/HST.
