Government tables Bill C-86

534 Parliament


On Monday, October 29th - the Minister of Finance introduced Bill C-86, A second Act to implement certain provisions of the budget tabled in Parliament on February 27, 2018 and other measures. This omnibus bill not only included many budget-related legislative amendments, but also significant amendments to both the Canada Shipping Act (CSA) and the Marine Liability Act (MLA). While it was expected that there would be amendments to the CSA to allow the Minister to regulate for environmental reasons, the amendments proposed in the Bill provide for significant new powers and authorities. More details on the amendments can be found under Division 22 and Division 23.
