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.

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