The Regulatory Modernization Act, 2007 came into force on January 17, 2008. Among other things, this Act allows designated provincial ministries, including the MOE and the Ministry of Labour, to share information, including information obtained from regulatory inspections, investigations or audits under designated legislation. The Act also authorizes the publication (including on the Internet) of this information and the use of prior relevant convictions (under any statute) that occurred at any time, including before the Act came into force, in sentencing decisions. The Ministry of Labour is accepting comments on how it might promulgate regulations under this Act until February 3, 2008. For more information, please see
