Title or Working Title of the Regulatory Initiative

Regulations amending the Seeds Regulations and the Health of Animals Regulations, Veterinary Biologics (Bilingual labelling)

Description of the Objective

These proposed amendments to the Seeds Regulations and the Health of Animals Regulations would respond to a Standing Joint Committee for the Scrutiny of Regulations' recommendation to make sure certain labelling provisions of these regulations comply with section 26 of the Official Languages Act (OLA) which requires that labelling provisions pertaining to health and safety be presented in both official languages. It is a priority of the Government of Canada to be in full compliance with the requirements of the OLA.

Enabling Act

Seeds Act and Health of Animals Act

Indication of Business Impacts

There may be business impacts. The "One-for-One" Rule and the Small Business Lens may apply.

Public Consultation Opportunities

These proposed amendments will be published in the Canada Gazette, Part II in Fall 2017. As the amendments are necessary in order to comply with the official language requirements under the OLA, an exemption from pre-publication in the Canada Gazette, Part I is being sought.
