The Ontario government is proposing to introduce rolling incorporation of Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) efficiency standards for 24 space and water heating products regulated under the Efficiency Regulation. Through the rolling incorporation approach, the proposed amendments would allow for automated updates to the Efficiency Regulation whenever NRCan revises or updates their standards for these products. These changes are administrative in nature and would only result in updates to existing efficiency levels when NRCan changes/updates their standards.
