Enabling Act Agricultural Products Marketing Act
Description

As a result of a review of the regulatory framework under the APMA, conducted by the Farm Products Council of Canada (FPCC) and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC), and recommendations from the Standing Joint Committee for the Scrutiny of Regulations, improvements have been identified to be made to the APMA.

As part of it, FPCC and AAFC continue to work on proposing legislative changes to the Act and updating individual Orders. The focus is on removing the “by order” provision to allow provincial boards to enact and amend their levies and subsidiary orders at the provincial level, inserting the provincial supervisory board authority, and necessary drafting updates.

Potential impacts on Canadians, including businesses There are no expected business impacts.
Regulatory cooperation efforts (domestic and international) Federal Delegation Orders facilitate interprovincial and export trade by authorizing provincial commodity boards to regulate the marketing of agricultural commodities to the same extent that they regulate marketing in intraprovincial trade, creating a comprehensive marketing scheme.
Consultation Consultations are conducted with provincial commodity boards and provincial supervisory boards on an ongoing basis via email and meetings.
