Legislative summary

The Library of Parliament does not prepare Legislative Summaries for self-explanatory measures. The following is a short summary:

On 3 October 2017, the Minister of Justice introduced Bill C-60, An Act to correct certain anomalies, inconsistencies and errors and to deal with other matters of a non-controversial and uncomplicated nature in the Statutes of Canada and to repeal certain Acts and provisions that have expired, lapsed or otherwise ceased to have effect (Miscellaneous Statute Law Amendment Act, 2017), in the House of Commons and it was given first reading.

Bill C-60 is the 12th in a series of bills introduced under the Miscellaneous Statute Law Amendment (MSLA) Program. It amends 41 Acts to correct grammatical, spelling, terminological, typographical and cross-referencing errors, update archaic wording and correct discrepancies between the two language versions. It also updates the names of certain organizations, for example, “Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants” is replaced with “Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada”. Finally, it contains amendments repealing eight Acts that no longer have any application, for example, the Maintenance of Ports Operations Act, 1986.

The bill has been drafted based on the Thirteenth Report of the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights tabled in the House of Commons on May 31, 2017 and the Twenty-first Report of the Standing Senate Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs tabled in the Senate on June 21, 2017.
