How to comment

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

The commenting feature on our website allows you to comment on proposed regulations published in Part I of the Canada Gazette. Once the consultation period is over, you will be able to view all submitted comments on our website.

Since April 2021, the online commenting feature is available for a sampling of proposed regulations as we improve the feature over time. We are taking this step to measure how the changes will impact regulators and commenters.

Proposed regulations that you can comment on using our online feature are found in the Most recently published section of this page.
