Fee Structure

A claim for exemption filed under the Hazardous Materials Information Review Act (HMIRA) must be presented with the prescribed fee as per sections 4, 5 and 7 of the Hazardous Materials Information Review Regulations.

Fees associated with claims for exemption under the HMIRA are subject to an annual fee adjustment in accordance with the Service Fees Act (SFA).  Health Canada has selected April 1st as the anniversary date of its annual fee adjustments which will commence April 1, 2019.  On April 1 of each calendar year, fees will be adjusted using the April All-items Consumer Price Index (CPI) for Canada as published by Statistics Canada for the previous fiscal year.
