Parliamentary process

In February 2018, the government introduced proposed legislation (Bills C-68 and C-69) that would put in place better rules to protect our environment, fish and waterways, and rebuild public trust in how decisions about resource development are made. In June 2018, both Bills passed in the House of Commons with amendments following feedback from Indigenous peoples, companies, and Canadians. Both Bills have been sent to the Senate to be studied by a Committee in the fall.

Stay informed about the status of the proposed legislation and learn about ways to get involved as it goes through the Parliamentary process.
