Retirement Homes Act, 2010
Summary of Proposal:
The Ministry of Seniors Affairs is proposing the following changes to the Retirement Homes Act, 2010 Regulation 166/11 in preparation for federal legalization of cannabis, which is expected to come into effect by July 2018.
The proposed two technical amendments would update the existing requirements related to the disclosure of offences by applicants for a retirement home licence, as well as by staff and volunteers in retirement homes, to include cannabis-related offences under applicable federal law.
The proposed regulatory amendments, if approved, would come into effect at the same time as the federal legislation, should it be passed.
The ministry invites you to submit comments on the proposed changes for the ministry's consideration. Comments may be electronically submitted to RHConsultations@ontario.ca.
Analysis of Regulatory Impact:
Compliance costs to business are not expected as a result of this regulatory proposal.
