Sep 1, 2017 - Sep 22, 2017
As a place that protects unique landscapes, such as the Peace-Athabasca Delta, Wood Buffalo National Park is designated as a World Heritage Site. In response to concerns raised by a local First Nation, the World Heritage Committee requested that Parks Canada undertake a Strategic Environmental Assessment of cumulative effects that may be impacting the international heritage values of Wood Buffalo National Park World Heritage Site. Parks Canada has hired an independent contractor to carry out that assessment, in consultation with affected Indigenous groups and stakeholders. The assessment is due in March, 2018 and will inform a larger Action Plan for the protection of the park's world heritage values. The goal of the assessment is to identify the values, threats and indicators that will help land users and decision makers understand and consider the park's world heritage values. At this time Parks Canada is inviting feedback on the contractor's draft scoping report for the Strategic Environmental Assessment.

Notice - Access to Substances Temporarily Controlled under the CDSA

Health | Regulations
Aug 26, 2017 - Sep 25, 2017
You are invited to comment on our proposal to allow access for research to substances that are temporarily controlled under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA). The Minister of Health can place controls on a substance for up to two years if there are reasons to believe it: presents a significant risk to public health or public safety, might present a risk to public health or public safety and is being imported or distributed in Canada for no legitimate purpose. When a substance is under temporary control, it may not be: sold, sent, provided, imported, exported, delivered, produced, packaged or transported. At this time the regulations do not allow access for research purposes to substances under temporary control. We are proposing to make changes to Part J of the Food and Drug Regulations to allow for such access. The purpose of this consultation is to ask for comments on our intention to change Part J of the Food and Drug Regulations. These changes would allow access for research to substances that are under temporary control.
