INAC Regulatory Interpretation Policy Improvement Priority and Metrics
This website will change as a result of the dissolution of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, the creation of Indigenous Services Canada and the eventual creation of Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada. During this transformation, you may also wish to consult the updated Indigenous and Northern Affairs home page.
Seeking feedback from stakeholders and partners on INAC's Regulatory Interpretation Policy and its regulatory guidance and services, an online survey was posted from May 30 to September 2, 2016. The survey asked two questions:
How can INAC improve its regulatory guidance and services?
How can INAC improve its Regulatory Interpretation Policy?
Stakeholders recommended that INAC increase visibility and improve access to regulatory initiatives, guidance and services for Indigenous peoples including more broadly for community members and those in urban centres.
using social media and the internet as well as traditional channels (such as television, newspapers and mail) to share information on regulatory initiatives, guidance and services
increasing visibility and access through urban centres and organizations
providing information in Indigenous languages
preference for in-person engagement and consultations rather than letters or email
To address these concerns, INAC has developed an improvement priority and metrics to measure its improvement for its regulatory guidance and services.
