“Trade between Canada and the U.S. generates many jobs for hard-working Canadians,” said Lawrence MacAulay, minister of agriculture and agri-food, Canada. “The Government of Canada is committed to streamlining regulations between our two countries while protecting health, safety and the environment. We are committed to working with our U.S. partners through the Regulatory Cooperation Council to achieve better efficiency on both sides of the border.”

The RCC is a joint initiative between Canada and the United States that seeks to facilitate regulatory cooperation between the two countries. In addition, it aims to enhance economic competitiveness while protecting the health, safety and environment of both countries. The new web-based consultation tool will provide a consistent structure for stakeholders to provide feedback on the RCC initiatives that matter to them, and input on future opportunities.
