Forward Regulatory Plan

The Impact Assessment Agency of Canada’s (the Agency) Forward Regulatory Plan for 2023-2025 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, the 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.
