List of Regulations

Regulations are the rules used to carry out the intent of statutes (Acts) enacted by the Parliament of Canada. They are instruments of legislative power and have the force of law.

Regulations contain more specific guidelines than Acts. They can include definitions, licensing requirements, performance specifications, exemptions, forms and other details. The Canada Grain Act, administered by the Canadian Grain Commission, has its own accompanying Regulations.

Effective August 1, 2015, amendments to the Canada Grain Regulations come into force

The regulatory amendments are minor updates and include the following:

  • Sampling Handbook and Approval Guide:
    • changes to the date in subsections 6(1) and 6.2 to August 1, 2015;
    • change the reference to the Canadian Grain Commission’s Sampling Systems Handbook and Approval Guide by specifying Chapter 2 as being incorporated by reference for the purpose of the subsection 6(1) and section 6.2 of the Canada Grain Regulations.
  • Subsection 59(1), French:
    • The text that refers to the operator of a terminal elevator (“une installation terminale”) is amended to accord with the English text that refers to the operator of a licensed terminal elevator (“une installation terminale agréée”).

All of the government’s acts and regulations can be found on the Justice Canada web site.
