Context

Regulations are one of the most important tools available to governments to realize public policy goals and realized social and economic wellbeing and growth. In today’s complex government environment success or failure in regulatory development calls for the ability to work horizontally with actors across government and stakeholders outside of government representing an array of interests, such as provinces, territories, and municipalities, representatives of Indigenous peoples, and non-governmental organizations.

With the publication of the new Directive of Regulation the Government of Canada set out expectations and requirements to guide all facets of the federal regulatory approach from development to evaluation and review. The new Directive is guided by the four principles: protecting and advancing the public interest and good government; modern, open and transparent processes; evidence-based decision-making; and contribution to a fair and competitive economy.

Course General Description

Participants will be introduced to the main elements of the federal regulator process and requirements through a combination of presentations, group exercises, and discussions.
