Bill or Act:
Proposed Cutting Unnecessary Red Tape Act, 2017
Summary of Proposal:
Amendments to the Act would update the definitions of "Minister" and "Ministry" to reflect the name change to the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change.

The Act would be amended to allow the Minister to publish prescribed information about instruments created under any act administered by the Minister for the purpose of making the information available to the public. Subsection 19 (12) is currently limited to information about instruments created under the Environmental Protection Act and the Ontario Water Resources Act. The Ministry anticipates making information about pesticides licences available to the public.
