ATL: Atlantic Premiers working together toward a common goal
On January 23, 2019, the council of the Atlantic Premiers met to discuss economic growth and regulatory cooperation in Prince Edward Island. Of key interest to the propane industry was the discussion on regulatory alignment aimed at promoting regulatory efficiency within Atlantic Canada.
The regional authorities having jurisdiction (AHJ) are working towards regulatory and policy alignment of the technical safety trades. Alignment would yield such benefits as freer movement of highly skilled employees, which would help streamline inter-provincial trade and therefore, strengthen the economy.
The CPA is working closely with the AHJ on this matter and will notify members as soon as public consultations commence.
