Forward Regulatory Plan

The Impact Assessment Agency of Canada's (the Agency) Forward Regulatory Plan for 2020-2022 is a publicly available list with descriptions of planned or anticipated regulatory changes (regulatory initiatives) that the Agency intends to propose or finalize within a two-year period. It may include regulatory initiatives that are planned to come forward over a longer time frame and that are indicated as long-term.

Some of the initiatives in this plan may be associated with the Agency's multi-year plan to review its existing regulations, Regulatory Stock Review Plan.

Forward Regulatory Plans are intended to help Canadians, including businesses, Indigenous peoples, and trading partners plan for:

  • opportunities to provide their feedback during regulatory development; and
  • future regulatory changes.

The Forward Regulatory Plan briefly describes each regulatory initiative and includes information such as:

  • who may be affected by a regulatory initiative;
  • regulatory cooperation efforts undertaken or planned;
  • opportunities for public consultation;
  • links to related information or analysis; and
  • the Agency's contact information.

The Forward Regulatory Plan will be updated over time to reflect, for example:

  • progress in regulatory development; and
  • changes to the Agency's regulatory priorities or its operating environment.

Consult the Agency's Acts and Regulations web page for:

  • a list of acts and regulations administered by the Agency; and
  • further information on the Agency's implementation of government-wide regulatory management initiatives.
