How to comment on proposed regulations

Federal departments and agencies give interested groups, individuals and all Canadians the opportunity to review and comment on proposed regulations before they become official.

How to submit using the new online commenting feature

We’ve created a new commenting feature on our website that allows you to comment on proposed regulations published in Part I of the Canada Gazette. Once the consultation period is over, you will also be able to view all submitted comments on our website.

Beginning in April 2021, the online commenting feature will be available for a sampling of proposed regulations. We are taking this step to measure how the changes will impact regulators and commenters alike.
