Proposal to amend O. Reg. 509/18 under the Electricity Act, 1998 ("Efficiency Regulation")  (source: Environmental Registry)

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.
