Health Canada will be conducting public consultations this winter on proposed new legislation in the area of health protection.

The new legislative framework would be centred on a new Canada Health Protection Act .  The new Act would replace the Quarantine Act (1872), the Food and Drugs Act (1953),  most of the Hazardous Products Act (1969), and the Radiation Emitting Devices Act (1969).  Existing laws that would remain in force, such as the Tobacco Act and the Pest Control Products Act,
would work together with the new Canada Health Protection Act to produce a stronger legislative framework for health protection.

Please find attached a 2-page summary of the detailed legislative
proposal for the new Canada Health Protection Act.

(See attached file: A PROPOSED NEW CANADA HEALTH PROTECTION ACT.pdf)

We invite you to submit your written comment on the detailed proposal for a new Canada Health Protection Act via our web site, at http://renewal.hc-sc.gc.ca.

You can also register to participate in the consultations via our Web site at http://renewal.hc-sc.gc.ca.  Once we have received your registration, we will contact you to invite you to the next consultation in the British Columbia/Yukon Region.

For additional information, please contact Ms. Amber Allen by phone at 604-666-2612.
