Amendments to the Corrections and Conditional Release Regulations

Enabling act

Corrections and Conditional Release Act


The Correctional Service of Canada intends to make technical amendments to several parts of the Corrections and Conditional Release Regulations based on long-standing issues raised by the Standing Joint Committee for the Scrutiny of Regulations.

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.


Amendments made as a result of concerns raised by the Standing Joint Committee for the Scrutiny of Regulations generally do not require public consultation due to their technical nature. No stakeholder objections are anticipated due to the administrative and technical nature of these amendments.
