Federal government to amend the Canadian Environmental Protection Act for the first time in 22 years

April 15, 2021

The Minister of Environment and Climate Change announced the much anticipated reform to the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) amending it for the first time since 1999.

A summary of the proposed amendments is available here. Based on the first overview, impacts of the proposed amendments on retailers seem relatively minor; changes in the upcoming years to the policies stemming from the Act are expected to yield more impacts on retailers.

RCC will provide feedback as part of the consultation process.
