Governance and Policy Instruments
This course is part of the following part-time on campus and/or online program(s):
An understanding of the regulatory framework in Canada and familiarity with international regulatory regimes is of paramount importance to professionals in regulatory affairs. Students examine and discuss legislation, policies and acts that shape regulations in Canada, and explore the relationships between regulations and policy instruments available to government. Using case studies, students situate regulations in the wider framework of governance across various sectors. Students work independently and in small groups to research, summarize and present comparisons of different regulatory regimes internationally and discuss the history, scope and potential impacts of the harmonization of those regimes.
