Bill C-36, An Act respecting the safety of consumer products (short title: the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act or CCPSA) was introduced in the House of Commons by the Honourable Leona Aglukkaq, Minister of Health, on 9 June 2010. Bill C-36 is very similar to Bill C-52, An Act respecting the safety of consumer products, which was introduced in the House of Commons during the 2nd Session of the 39th Parliament, and Bill C-6, An Act respecting the safety of consumer products, which was introduced in the House of Commons during the 2nd Session of the 40th Parliament.
Bill C-36’s most striking or significant features are the powers it provides to both the Minister of Health and designated officials to order recalls of consumer products, and the new penalty and compliance regime that it establishes for such products.
During the study of Bill C-6, the immediate predecessor to Bill C-36, the House of Commons made several amendments, all but one9 of which had been recommended by the House of Commons Standing Committee on Health. All amendments made by the House of Commons to Bill C-6 have been incorporated into Bill C-36.
