Amendments to the Feeds Regulations are required for the CFIA and regulated sectors to better manage risks that livestock feeds pose to animal health, human health and the environment. The proposed feed framework includes hazard analysis, preventive controls, traceability, increased record-keeping requirements, and licensing. These changes will better align with international regulatory frameworks and best practices. This will enable the CFIA and regulated sectors to better understand and manage risks that livestock feeds pose to animal health, human health and the environment, and will support proactive practices for managing those risks.

Technical Consultation - Residential Indoor Air Quality Guidelines for Carbon Dioxide – For Public Consultation Closed Health | Policy Aug 22, 2020 to Oct 21, 2020 2020-08-22 2020-10-21 Health Canada The present document reviews the epidemiological, toxicological, and exposure research on carbon dioxide (CO2). The intent is to propose a new long-term exposure limit for CO2 in residential indoor air, which would minimize risks to human health, and recommend various risk mitigation measures to reduce exposure to CO2. The purpose of this consultation is to solicit comments on the proposed Residential Indoor Air Quality Guidelines (RIAQG) for CO2. The proposed document aims to revisit the Exposure Guidelines for Residential Indoor Air Quality developed for CO2 published in 1987 by Health Canada, which set an acceptable long-term exposure range (ALTER) of ≤ 3500 ppm for CO2 in residential indoor air. Since the publication of these guidelines, new information has become available regarding potential health effects of exposure to elevated CO2 levels (particularly epidemiological and controlled human exposure studies) and indoor concentrations of CO2 in Canada. The document proposes a long-term exposure limit of 1000 ppm (based on a 24-hour average) to protect against increased risk of symptoms including eye irritation, rhinitis, headaches and tiredness, as well as decreased performance on tasks and tests. Levels of CO2 in Canadian homes may be above the long-term exposure limit, and accordingly, Health Canada recommends that individuals take actions to reduce indoor levels of CO2 by ensuring adequate ventilation and controlling indoor sources.

Proposed regulatory amendments to allow for automatic invalidation of certain immigration documents following an enforceable removal order Closed Immigration | Policy June 3, 2019 to July 3, 2019 2019-06-03 2019-07-03 Canada Border Services Agency Consultations were held on the Consulting with Canadians website from June 3 to July 3, 2019. 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, 2019 to 2021, and 2020 to 2022, the CBSA is developing proposed amendments to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR) to automatically cancel temporary resident visas (TRVs), electronic travel authorizations (eTAs), temporary resident permits (TRPs), work permits and study permits by operation of law when the holder of the document has been issued a removal order . In the case of TRPs, this proposal will only apply when a removal order is issued subsequent to the issuance of the TRP and this proposal will not impact the foreign nationals issued TRPs following the issuance of an enforceable a removal order, unless there is a subsequent 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 cancellation of eTAs, TRVs, TRPs, work permits and study permits 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. • Cancellation of eTAs, TRVs, and TRPs, work permits and study permits will only occur when a removal order is issued against the holder becoming enforceable. 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 cancellation of eTAs, TRVs, and TRPs, work permits and study permits an effect of an enforceable removal order issuance. Public consultations on the proposed regulatory amendments were undertaken in the 2019‒2020.
