Consultation on proposed regulatory framework for livestock feeds Closed Agriculture | Amendments | Animals | Industry | Policy | Regulations Sept 30, 2020 to Nov 15, 2020 2020-09-30 2020-11-15 Canadian Food Inspection Agency This consultation seeks feedback on the document Feed Regulatory Modernization – Pre Canada Gazette, Part I Publication Consultation, which provides an overview of the proposed changes to the Feeds Regulations and the potential economic impacts of these changes. The last comprehensive review of the Feeds Regulations took place in 1983. The current Regulations focus on products (for example, registration, standards and labelling) with few or no requirements that apply to processes (for example, manufacturing standards and record keeping). Regulatory changes are needed to keep pace with changes in innovation, risk management, international standards, science and technology. 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.

Finally, dredging will be carried out for the installation of timber cribs, under the new floating pontoons and in the enlargement of the inner basin to allow for the safe mooring of surplus vessels using the floating pontoons.

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.

First Nations Child and Family Services Program Reform Closed Children | Culture | Health | Indigenous Peoples | Justice and the Law | Rural and remote services | Service Sept 1, 2016 to Jan 1, 2020 2016-09-01 2020-01-01 Indigenous Services Canada As part of its commitment to reform child and family services, the federal government hosted an Emergency Meeting in January 2018 on First Nations, Inuit and Métis Child and Family Services with provinces and territories, Indigenous partners, child and family services experts, provincial advocates, youth and other key partners. At the Emergency Meeting, the federal government committed to six points of action to address the over-representation of Indigenous children and youth in care in Canada. One of the points of action was a commitment to work with our partners to support communities to exercise jurisdiction in the area of child and family services, including exploring co-developed federal legislation. More information on the Six Points of Action is available online. Throughout the summer and fall of 2018, Indigenous Services Canada held engagements to co-develop options for child and family services federal legislation. As part of that engagement, officials held over 65 engagement sessions across the country and met with nearly 2,000 First Nations, Inuit, and Métis participants including leaders and experts. Additional engagements took place with Indigenous, provincial and territorial partners in January 2019 to gather feedback on the content of the draft legislation. On June 21, 2019, the Act respecting First Nations, Inuit and Métis children, youth and families became a law, and on January 1, 2020, its provisions came into force. The Act: • affirms the rights of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples to exercise jurisdiction over child and family services; • establishes national principles such as the best interests of the child, cultural continuity and substantive equality; • contributes to the implementation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples; • provides an opportunity for Indigenous peoples to choose their own solutions for their children and families. It recognizes a simple truth: one size does not fit all when it comes to Indigenous child and family services. Indigenous communities and organizations can now develop policies and laws based on their particular histories, cultures, and circumstances with regards to child and family services The Department is also working closely with the parties to the Complaint through a Consultation Committee on the implementation of all of the Tribunal orders. As part of the orders, the parties to the Complaint and Canada have jointly signed a Consultation Protocol to ensure that engagement consultations are carried out in a manner consistent with the Honour of the Crown and to eliminate the discrimination substantiated in the decision.
