Frequently Asked Questions


Looking for a notice or regulations?

Step one: Determine in which part of the Canada Gazette you should look to find the notice or regulations. The Canada Gazette is made up of three parts: Part I, Part II and Part III.

Part I is most often divided into the following six categories.

  • Government house: contains notices of orders, decorations, medals and mention in dispatches awarded to Canadians.
  • Government notices: contains notices published by federal departments.
  • Parliament: contains notices published by the House of Commons, the Commissioner of Canada Elections, the Senate, and the Chief Electoral Officer.
  • Commissions: contains notices published by federal agencies, boards and commissions.
  • Miscellaneous notices: contains notices published by private companies, individuals and municipal and provincial governments.
  • Proposed regulations: contains regulations that have not been enacted and that can be commented on.

Part II contains regulations that have been enacted as well as other classes of statutory instruments, such as orders in council, orders and proclamations. Each document has an SOR number or an SI number. Only government departments and agencies publish in Part II.

Part III contains the most recent public acts of Parliament and their enactment proclamations. The alternate format version of the acts published in Part III is available on the Department of Justice's Web site.

Step two: Look in the recent publications of Part I, Part II or Part III or use our search engine to find the document you are looking for. You can also look in our online archives to find issues that date back to January 1998.

I have a question about the content of a notice or regulations published in the Canada Gazette. Can you help?

The Canada Gazette Directorate is responsible for publishing the Canada Gazette; we are not responsible for interpreting the content of the notices or regulations. We are therefore unable to answer specific questions about the content of a notice or regulations (for example "How do the recent amendments to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations affect my application for immigration?").

Please contact the government department responsible for the notice or regulations or the private sector company responsible for the notice. If you have questions of a legal nature, you should consult a lawyer.

If the regulations are at the proposal stage, you can contact the person responsible for them. Proposed regulations are published in Part I. The name and contact information of the person responsible for a text of regulations is found at the end of each regulatory impact analysis statement that accompanies the proposed regulations, under "Contact." A list of ongoing consultation on proposed regulations is found on our Consultation page.
