Like similar bills in NL and NS, the federal government tabled proposed amendments to the Canada-Newfoundland Atlantic Accord Implementation Act and Canada-Nova Scotia Offshore Petroleum Resources Accord Implementation Act. The minister of natural resources and provincial OHS ministers will be jointly responsible for the new OHS laws, while the C-NSOPB and the C-NLOPB will administer it. The labour minister will be involved in the development of regulations.
