Post C-10 Technical Amendments to the Corrections and Conditional Release Regulations

Enabling act

Corrections and Conditional Release Act


On June 13, 2012, Part 3 of the Safe Streets and Communities Act came into force, amending the Corrections and Conditional Release Act (CCRA). Due to the changes made to the CCRA, which is the enabling legislation, a number of technical changes are required to the Corrections and Conditional Release Regulations.

The changes proposed are technical in nature, such as updating language in the Regulations to concord with that of the CCRA, and making deletions where required. The proposal would update and align the Regulations with the current language of the CCRA in order to ensure consistency between the two.

Potential impacts on Canadians, including businesses

There are no expected impacts.

Regulatory cooperation efforts (domestic and international)

The proposed changes are technical in nature. Therefore, no regulatory cooperation efforts are required.


No consultations required. As these amendments are technical in nature, it is not expected that stakeholder groups would have objections.
