RegData Canada

RegData Canada uses the RegData 3.1 framework to create multiple datasets from the regulatory code of Canada and the regulatory code of the Canadian provinces. These datasets include statistics such as the number of individual restrictions in a given administrative code, the industries that those restrictions affect, and the agencies that have issued those restrictions. The most recent RegData user’s guide can be found here and a short history of the RegData project can be found here. The interactive RegData Canada Regulation Tracker can be found here.
