The proposed Corded Window Coverings Regulations are open for comment until August 31, 2017
Comment period extended until August 14, 2017.
Have your voice heard. Until July 25, 2017 you can share your views with Health Canada on their proposals for:
• “new restrictions on marketing to children to support families in making healthier food choices; and,
• a revision of Canada’s Food Guide to better address the changing food environment and to support Canadians in making healthier food choices.”
“Health Canada’s approach will be informed by existing policies in Canada and around the world. It will also take into account existing federal nutrition policies and regulations and use the same evidence and rationale on which those were based. Regulatory measures will ensure that all food and beverage companies are subject to the same marketing restrictions.”
