Canada Gazette for Canadians –  A Public and Private News Source:

 

How does Canada Gazette help Canadians?

 

  • Providing access to Canadians | PUBLIC SECTOR:
    Canadians have a right of access to the laws and regulations that govern their daily lives. Due to its legislative content, the Canada Gazette is one of the vehicles that guarantee that right of access.

 

  • Engaging citizens through the consultation process | PUBLIC Sector:
    The Canada Gazette serves as a vehicle which facilitates the process of engaging the general public in voicing any concerns about the proposed regulations published in Part I. Canadians can actively contribute to the regulatory process by sending their comments or concerns on the subject under consultation to the appropriate department or agency.

 

  • Assisting the private sector in meeting legal requirements | PRIVATE Sector:
    The private sector is also required to publish certain notices in the Canada Gazette. The Canada Gazette Directorate provides an advisory and publication service to the private sector for legal requirements such as those for the protection of our environment.

 

For example, under one of the Acts, notices about the building of bridges, roads, airports, or buildings which would pass over, through or on a body of water must be published in the Canada Gazette. Private sector companies such as banks, loan companies and insurance companies are also required to publish in the Canada Gazette.

 

In essence, Canada Gazette deals with everyday governmental news, and that by itself relates to many different industries, sectors and professions, making it a vital source of knowledge, research, and everything in between.

 

 

Part I: Notices and Proposed Regulations:

 

What is Part I?

 

The Canada Gazette consists of three parts. Published every Saturday, the Canada Gazette, Part I, contains public notices, official appointments and proposed regulations from the Government, as well as miscellaneous notices from the private sector that are required to be published by federal statute or by regulations.
