Within the meaning of the Act, for consent to be express, it must have been obtained following a request in clear and simple language that states the purpose for which the consent is requested and identifies the person seeking consent. Consent will be implied if the sender and the recipient have an existing business or non-business relationship, if the recipient has obviously published his electronic address or if the recipient has disclosed his electronic address to the sender.

The commercial message must be in a form that conforms to the requirements set out in the Act and its Regulations and must include information that identifies the sender, information enabling the recipient to contact the sender and an unsubscribe mechanism.

A person who does not comply with the requirements in the Act commits an offence and is liable to a fine.

Export and Import of Rough Diamonds Act

The long title of this Act is: An Act providing for controls on the export, import or transit across Canada of rough diamonds and for a certification scheme for the export of rough diamonds in order to meet Canada’s obligations under the Kimberley Process.

The Kimberley Process is an internationally agreed upon system of certification for rough diamonds that is intended to prevent conflict diamonds – rough diamonds used by rebel movements to finance military activities, including against legitimate governments – from entering lawful markets. This certification scheme requires participating countries to ensure that rough diamonds are imported and exported in tamper-resistant containers accompanied by a valid certificate from the government of the exporting country stating that the diamonds are not conflict diamonds.

The Act implements Canada’s obligations as a participant in the Kimberley Process by designating Natural Resources Canada as the national authority for the import and export of rough diamonds and by setting out a Canadian certification process. As well, the Act contains provisions detailing Canada’s inspection and enforcement obligations, and, as required under the Kimberley Process, it allows the export of diamonds only to other participating countries.

International Boundary Waters Treaty Act

This Act sanctions the Boundary Waters Treaty (Treaty), made between Canada and the United States in 1909. The Treaty is found in the Schedule 1 to the Act.

The Treaty defines boundary waters as “the waters from main shore to main shore of the lakes and rivers and connecting waterways, or the portions thereof, along which the international boundary between the United States and the Dominion of Canada passes”. The Act furthermore defines transboundary waters as waters that flow across the boundary between the two countries.

The introductory portion of the Act confirms the Treaty and states one of the central principles of the Act: if a boundary water is diverted in Canada, resulting in an injury to a party in the United States, the injured party can seek the same legal remedy as if the injury took place in Canada.

Most of the Act’s provisions are found under the heading “Licenses and Prohibitions”. These provisions prohibit the bulk removal of boundary and transboundary waters. A license from the Minister of Foreign Affairs (Minister) is required for any use, diversion or obstruction of boundary waters. The provisions under the subheading “Powers of the Minister” set forth the conditions for licence issuance, transfer or revocation. The provisions under the subheading “Administration and Enforcement – Powers” outlines the powers of ministerial-appointed inspectors to enforce and inspect. Penalties for contraventions of the Act are discussed in the subheading “Administration and Enforcement – Offences and Penalties”.

Finally, the Treaty establishes the International Joint Commission (Commission). The goal of the Commission is to anticipate, prevent, and resolve disputes between the two countries in an independent and impartial manner. Along with its research and policy-making duties, the Commission may issue Orders of Approval in response to applications for use, obstruction, or diversion of boundary waters.

The Minister’s enforcement officers and analysts have certain powers to enter and inspect premises or conveyances, and to seize materials. An enforcement officer can issue a compliance order directing a person to take various measures, including stopping an operation or activity, keeping records and making reports. Persons who contravene the Act may be subject to fines or imprisonment.

Packaging and Transport of Nuclear Substances Regulations, 2015

This Regulation is derived from International Atomic Energy Agency’s regulations, which rely on the design of the transport package to provide safety and security. The Regulation covers all aspects of the packaging of radioactive material, including the design, production, use, inspection, maintenance and repair of packages.

Packages designed for the transport of low-risk levels of radioactive material do not require certification by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) due to their low level of risk. Consignors must be able to provide written demonstration that the package meets the regulatory performance standards, as defined in this Regulation. Substances transported in these types of packages include surface-contaminated objects, portable gauges, radioactive medical isotopes, and empty packages that may contain residual contamination.

Packages designed for the transport of high-risk levels of radioactive material require certification by the CNSC before they can be used in Canada. Users of these packages must register with the CNSC and acknowledge that they have the necessary instructions to properly prepare the package for shipment. The types of packages include: Type H, Type B, and Type C packages, and packages designed to contain fissile material. These packages are designed to transport nuclear substances such as cobalt-60, sealed sources used for industrial radiography, used nuclear fuel and enriched uranium.

Packages requiring certification have to undergo stringent testing since improper packaging can give rise to severe consequences. Testing must simulate both normal and accident conditions of transport. The tests can include free-drop testing, puncture testing, thermal testing and aircraft accident simulations.

The Regulation stipulates CNSC licences for certain transport activities, including:
licence to transport Category I, II or III material
licence to transport while in transit (situations where nuclear substances are passing through Canada while traveling from one country to another)
licence to package or transport under special arrangement (shipments that cannot be transported in an already-approved package).
