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.
Boosting charitable spending in our communities Closed Economic development | Society Aug 6, 2021 to Sept 30, 2021 2021-08-06 2021-09-30 Department of Finance Canada Supporting Canada's charities, non-profits, social enterprises, and other organizations to provide vital services to our communities, including to the most vulnerable members of society, is a key priority of the federal government.

Budget 2021 announced the government's intention to potentially increase the disbursement quota, which could boost support for the charitable sector, benefitting those that rely on its services. Through this consultation process, the Department of Finance is seeking feedback on potentially increasing the disbursement quota and updating the tools at the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA)'s disposal in order to enforce the disbursement quota rules, beginning in 2022.

Gender and sexual diversity statistical metadata standards Closed Gender Feb 2, 2021 to Mar 12, 2021 2021-02-02 2021-03-12 Statistics Canada In recent years, there has been an increase in public awareness and sensitivity in Canada towards the LGBTQ2+ communities. However, existing Canadian data and information on this subpopulation are limited. Statistics Canada is updating and developing new statistical metadata standards to better respond to the information needs of Canada's LGBTQ2+ communities. This consultation will ensure that Canadians have a say in the gender and sexual diversity statistical metadata standards. Statistics Canada released new sex at birth and gender standards in April 2018 to better reflect how Canadians describe themselves. In order to ensure relevance and to be meaningful to the communities it is measuring, Statistics Canada is improving and refining its gender standard with expert and data user feedback. In addition, Statistics Canada is currently developing new sexual orientation and LGBTQ2+ status standards to support information needs about the LGBTQ2+ communities. These standards are part of the statistical infrastructure that helps ensure diverse population groups are measured comparably across statistical programs. To provide information and insights on diverse population groups, data must first be collected in a standardized way to allow for meaningful comparisons. These standards will enable Statistics Canada to improve data collection, publication and analyses to support evidence-based policy planning and evaluation. The next steps involve collecting feedback from the general public on (1) the proposed updates to the standard on gender of person and (2) the proposed new standards on sexual orientation and LGBTQ2+ status of person.
