Regulatory Affairs

Canadian Propane Association - Association canadienne du propane


Transport Canada (TC) is currently consulting on proposed amendments to the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations (TDGR). TC regularly updates the Canadian regulations to harmonize them with UN, international and U.S. texts. The harmonization of the regulations allows TC to ensure consistency between the different modes of transport, facilitate international trade of dangerous goods, and reduce regulatory burden on consignors and carriers who deal with dangerous goods in Canada.
