Request for Public Comments on Future Areas for North American Regulatory Cooperation

Closing date: May 26, 2010

The Government of Canada is seeking the views of Canadians to identify areas where increased cooperation between Canada, the United States and Mexico could reduce significant-regulatory based differences that pose actual or potential barriers to Canadian competitiveness.

This notice is part of the Government of Canada’s domestic consultation process with business, citizen-based organizations and individual Canadians, as well as with provincial and territorial governments to obtain advice and views on priorities, objectives and concerns to help outline the parameters of this initiative.  We welcome comments, input and advice on future areas that could benefit from greater North American regulatory cooperation.

All interested parties are invited to submit their proposals by May 26, 2010.  Please be advised that any information received as a result of this consultation will be considered public information, unless explicitly stated otherwise.
