Targeted Regulatory Reviews (Round 3)

Areas of focus

The Government of Canada launched a third round of Regulatory Reviews in 2022. This round of Regulatory Reviews focuses on:

  • Blue Economy: examining the role of regulation as a driver of ocean innovation, identifying regulatory and administrative barriers to environmentally sustainable growth and facilitating the development of agile regulations to address concerns of future-oriented ocean industries.
  • Supply Chains: exploring opportunities to support stronger and more resilient supply chains through the regulatory framework, identifying areas where improvements to regulation or regulatory practices can support the movement of goods, services and people in Canada. Supply chains as they relate to cross-border movement, as well as to securing supply in key areas, would also be explored as part of the Review.

Regulatory Roadmaps

These reviews resulted in the following Regulatory Roadmaps, which lay out plans to advance regulatory modernization in support of economic growth and innovation in key sectors:

The Supply Chain Regulatory Review is currently underway. The Regulatory Roadmap will be posted once available.
