Forward Regulatory Plan 2022-2024: Regulations Amending Certain Department of Health Regulations (Miscellaneous Amendments Program)

Title of Regulatory Initiative

Regulations Amending Certain Department of Health Regulations (Miscellaneous Amendments Program)

Enabling Act


Health Canada is proposing regulatory amendment to correct minor errors or inconsistencies through a streamlined process in the following regulations:

The proposed amendments address issues raised by the Standing Joint Committee on the Scrutiny of Regulations and other issues noted by the department.

Regulatory cooperation efforts (domestic and international)

This initiative is not part of a formal regulatory cooperation work plan.

Potential impacts on Canadians, including businesses

All amendments are administrative in nature and thus no impact on the regulated industry or the Canadian public. It is anticipated that the amendments will improve clarity of the regulations.


Health Canada will seek an exemption from pre-publication from Treasury Board.

The publication of the final amendments in the Canada Gazette, Part II, is expected to take place in spring 2022.
