Forward Regulatory Plan

A Forward Regulatory Plan is a public list or description of anticipated regulatory changes or actions that a department intends to bring forward or undertake in a specified time frame. It is intended to give consumers, business, other stakeholders and trading partners greater opportunity to inform the development of regulations and to plan for the future. It should be noted that the Forward Regulatory Plan will be adjusted and updated over time as Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada's operating environment also changes over time.

The plan provides information on planned and potential regulatory initiatives that Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada expects to bring forward over the next two years. It also identifies public consultation opportunities and a departmental contact point for each regulatory initiative, ensuring that the regulatory process is more transparent and responsive to the needs of businesses and consumers.
