Streamlining the operations of the Canadian Grain Commission
Amendments to the Canada Grain Act were introduced in Parliament on October 18, 2012 to streamline the operations of the Canadian Grain Commission. The amendments are part of the Jobs and Growth Act, 2012. Parliament passed these amendments and the Jobs and Growth Act received Royal Assent on December 14, 2012.
Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and the office of Minister Gerry Ritz are the primary source of information on the legislative process, the amendments and policy changes.
Until the amendments are brought into force, the Canadian Grain Commission will continue to operate under the existing provisions of the Canada Grain Act and Regulations. The Canadian Grain Commission expects amendments to be brought into force for August 1, 2013.
We will communicate with our stakeholders throughout the legislative process.
