Government of Canada proposes new regulations for playpens

Proposed regulations would strengthen requirements for playpens to better protect infants and young children from potential injury or death

April 21, 2017 Ottawa, ON Health Canada

Playpens are intended to provide a safe playing environment for infants and young children. However, over the years, playpen designs have evolved and there are safety hazards associated with certain designs, including the use of accessories, such as change tables and other sleep accessories.

While these changes may appear convenient to parents, there are risks involved, including strangulation in collapsed side rails, getting caught between accessories and the playpen, getting caught in openings in the sides of the playpen, and suffocation on the angled mattress pads of sleep accessories.

Following consultation with provincial and territorial governments, Health Canada is proposing to replace the current requirements for playpens under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act, with the new Playpens Regulations. The proposed regulations were developed to help address identified safety issues and align the majority of the Canadian requirements with those in the U.S.

The proposed Playpens Regulations also better align with the Cribs, Cradles and Bassinets Regulations, which came into force on December 29, 2016. The Cribs, Cradles and Bassinets Regulations contain improved safety requirements for products marketed or intended for children’s sleep, such as cribs, cradles and bassinets, as well as sleep accessories that attach to these products.

The Government of Canada encourages Canadians to review the proposed new regulations and to submit feedback to Health Canada by June 6, 2017.

The best place for an infant or young child to sleep is always a crib, cradle or bassinet. Health Canada continues to remind parents and caregivers that playpens should not be used for unsupervised sleep. The Department also recommends that parents and caregivers always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for assembly and use.


“When parents purchase a playpen, they should have confidence that it will provide a safe environment for their child. The proposed changes will further strengthen safety requirements for these products in order to better protect infants and young children.”

Jane Philpott
Minister of Health

“As an organization dedicated to injury prevention and saving lives, Parachute supports these proposed new requirements. The stricter standards that Health Canada has introduced today will offer parents and caregivers better peace of mind when using products that children play and interact with on a daily basis.”

Pamela Fuselli,
Interim CEO, Parachute

Quick Facts

  • The proposed regulations include:
    • additional requirements and test methods to address unintentional folding or collapse of the playpen’s top rails, and
    • the introduction of requirements and test methods for playpen accessories, including accessories intended for unsupervised infant sleep.
  • Between 1990 and September 2016, the Department received 156 reports of incidents associated with playpens and their accessories. These incident reports included 10 deaths, 1 serious injury, 31 minor injuries, and 114 incidents without injury.
  • Between 1995 and October 2016, Health Canada negotiated 19 voluntary recalls with industry that were related to playpens. Eight of these related to entanglement, six to side-rail collapse and five to playpen accessories.

21 Additional First Nations welcomed as Signatories to the Framework Agreement

(April 21, 2017)

On behalf of the Lands Advisory Board, and the Framework Agreement Signatory First Nations, and with the full support of Canada, we are delighted to welcome the following 21 new signatory nations to the Framework Agreement. This brings the total number of Framework Agreement Signatory First Nations to 148.

This year the Framework Agreement on First Nation Land Management (Framework Agreement) celebrates 21 years of land governance authority, during which time it has helped communities across the country exercise their inherent rights over their reserve lands and resources. Under the Framework Agreement and the First Nations Land Management Act, 33 sections of the Indian Act no longer apply to those communities who ratify their community land codes enabling these communities to move ahead in their goals of self‐governance and self‐sufficiency beyond the boundaries of the Indian Act.

The Lands Advisory Board and the First Nations Land Management Resource Centre, have worked diligently to provide support to the Framework Agreement signatories, and to ensure that all First Nations are offered the opportunity to pursue this initiative, if they so desire. We are thankful to Canada, and to Minister Bennet and her staff, for the cooperation, partnership and continued support of First Nations across Canada in their pursuit to become signatories to the Framework Agreement.

We look forward to working with each of them as they continue their journey towards self‐ determination.

Nova Scotia: Paqtnkek Mi’kmaw Nation
Quebec: Listiguj Mi’gmaq

Animbiigoo Zaagi’igan Anishnaabek, Chapleau Cree, Big Grassy, Hiawatha,

Mattagami, Saugeen, Sheshegwaning

Saskatchewan: Carry The Kettle, James Smith, Sakimay
Alberta: Enoch Cree, Fort McMurray
British Ditidaht, Iskut, Kwaw‐kwaw‐apilt, Lytton, Penelakut, Splatsin Indian Band,
Columbia: T’it’q’et

“It is with great pride that we announce the addition of these 21 First Nations as signatories to the Framework Agreement. Under the Framework Agreement First Nations are recognized as the authority over their lands and resources and as such, land management activities are being completed at the speed of business. We are forging a new path of prosperity for our communities, and it is wonderful to welcome these 21 additional First Nations on our journey”

– Robert Louie

Chair, First Nations Land Advisory Board

“The Framework Agreement strengthens Aboriginal culture, renews our role as stewards of the land, promotes self‐sufficiency and community pride, and offers protection for our traditional values. It is a great day when we can welcome additional First Nations to the Framework Agreement, so that they too can experience the tremendous benefit it affords to our everyday lives. My thanks to Canada, and to Minister Bennet, for the continued support of this important, First Nation led initiative.”

– Chief Austin Bear

First Nations Land Management Resource Centre Inc.

“Congratulations to the 21 new signatory Nations to the Framework Agreement. Today marks an important step towards your journey to self‐determination. We will continue to work in full partnership with all the signatories as you assume greater control over reserve lands and resources ‐ leading to a brighter, more prosperous future for all.”

–The Honourable Carolyn Bennett

Minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs

Indigenous communities in New Brunswick to benefit from increased snow crab – APTN

April 20, 2017

Mi’kmaq and Maliseet communities in New Brunswick are hoping a bump in their snow crab quotas will help pay for programs that are underfunded by the federal government.

The department of Fisheries and Oceans announced April 12 it is using a surplus of crab stocks to ensure Indigenous communities receive an increase in their Total Allowable Catch (TAC).

“The communities will substantially benefit from any increase in the level of harvest,” said John G. Paul, executive director of Atlantic Policy Congress. “Both on the employment side, as well as the revenue side.”

Paul said the minister made a positive decision in targeting Indigenous communities so they can use the extra money to offset financial shortfalls or services not funded by the government.

Métis National Council Board of Governors Sign Historic Accord with Canadian Government – Métis Nation of Alberta

April 20, 2017

Thursday, April 13, 2017 was a historic day for Métis rights in Canada. Métis Nation of Alberta (MNA) President Audrey Poitras and other Members of the Métis National Council Board of Governors joined Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and key members of his cabinet in Ottawa for the inaugural meeting of the Crown-Métis Nation Summit. At the meeting, both parties signed a groundbreaking accord, Canada- Métis Nation Accord, which establishes important mandates to foster the nation-to-nation, government-to-government relationship between Canada and the Métis Nation. An important mandate of the Accord is increased meetings with policy makers, including annual meetings with the Prime Minister, semi-annual meetings with the Minister of Indigenous Affairs (and key Cabinet Ministers), and quarterly meetings with various Assistant Deputy Ministers on issues of concern to the Métis Nation.

The Accord was signed by Métis National Council (MNC) President Clément Chartier, and each of the Governing Members, including President Poitras. President Poitras is excited to start a new relationship with the federal government based on respect and recognition, stating:

The Accord is another important milestone for Métis rights; I am highly encouraged to see the steps the federal government is taking under the leadership of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. With the unprecedented access to policy makers that the Accord ensures, I am confident my fellow Métis leaders and myself will seek positive outcomes for Métis people of Alberta in significant and lasting ways.

In reference to the Accord, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stated:

Last December, I made the promise that federal ministers and Métis Nation leaders would work together to solve important challenges. We did not take that commitment lightly. Today, we are proud to announce our joint signing of the Canada-Métis Nation Accord. While there is still much that needs to be done if we are to address the unique social, cultural, economic, and environmental issues faced by the Métis, we now have a solid foundation upon which to move forward with a respectful, renewed Métis Nation-Crown relationship, for the benefit of all Canadians.

The federal government was represented by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and key members of his cabinet, including Minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs, Carolyn Bennett; Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, Jody Wilson-Raybould; President of the Treasury Board, Scott Brison; Minister of Health, Jane Philpot; Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour, Patricia Hajdu; and Minister of Families, Children and Social Development, Jean-Yves Duclos.

N.S. review of ‘conquered people’ brief complete, but minister won’t comment – APTN

April 20, 2017

A review of a controversial Crown brief that implied the Mi’kmaq are a conquered people is now complete, but Nova Scotia’s justice minister refused Wednesday to divulge its contents.

“I’ve seen the report and I’m not able to give any information about it,” Diana Whalen said after a cabinet meeting. “It’s got a lot of legal and personnel information in it.”

Whalen initiated the review after Mi’kmaq groups raised objections to the government’s decision to have Crown lawyer Alex Cameron handle a case involving the Indian Brook First Nation.

Late last year, the band argued that a plan by Alton Natural Gas Storage to create storage caverns near Stewiacke poses an environmental risk to the nearby Shubenacadie River.

Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup challenges Canadians to set a new record for Canada’s 150th birthday

ACROSS CANADA, April 21, 2017 – Canada is turning 150 this year and to celebrate the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is challenging Canadians to mark Canada’s big birthday by cleaning their shorelines in record-breaking numbers.

With Earth Day tomorrow, registration for the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is now open and is easier than ever, with a new, user-friendly website at

“We had an incredible year in 2016,” said Rachel Schoeler, manager of the Shoreline Cleanup. “We broke all of our previous records, with more than 2,300 shorelines cleaned and 77,000 people helping us protect ecosystems and wildlife across the country.”

The Shoreline Cleanup isn’t coasting on its success for the year ahead; instead it will build on the momentum to almost double participation, with a birthday-themed target of 150,000 Canadians taking part for 2017.

“We’re setting an ambitious target because we believe Canadians have a responsibility to protect the nature around them — and as last year’s record participation shows, Canadians care deeply about the health of their communities and want to take action for the environment.”

Now in its 24th year, the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, presented by Loblaw Companies Limited, is Canada’s largest conservation-based cleanup. An initiative of the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre and WWF-Canada, it calls on Canadians from coast to coast to help rehabilitate shoreline areas throughout the year. Participating in the Shoreline Cleanup educates participants on the stewardship of the water, habitats and how to make a positive impact on the environment.

“From storm drains, parks and school yards to lakes, rivers and oceans, shoreline litter impacts people and wildlife such as frogs, turtles, whales and birds in every corner of the country. By participating in the Shoreline Cleanup, we’re picking up debris before it has the chance to get into our aquatic ecosystems,” said Schoeler.

The most widely collected litter items in 2016 included plastic and paper bags, cigarettes, food wrappers and containers, caps and lids, glass and plastic beverage bottles, beverage cans, disposable flatware, straws, tobacco packaging and building materials. Once these items enter aquatic ecosystems, they can contaminate and degrade habitat, and cause injury to wildlife from ingestion and entanglement.

Celebrate Canada and make a difference in your community by taking action against shoreline litter. Participants can start a cleanup any time of year, at any shoreline across the country, and are invited clean it multiple times throughout the year.

The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup
The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, presented by Loblaw Companies Limited, is one of the largest direct action conservation programs in Canada. A conservation initiative of the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre and WWF-Canada, the Shoreline Cleanup aims to promote understanding of shoreline litter issues by engaging Canadians to rehabilitate shoreline areas through cleanups.

Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre
The Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre is a non‐profit society dedicated to the conservation of aquatic life.

WWF-Canada creates solutions to the conservation challenges that matter most to Canadians, so that nature, wildlife and people thrive together. Because we are all wildlife.

Gallery commemorates 150 years of Canadian Confederation – Beaverbrook Art Gallery

April 20, 2017

Gallery commemorates 150 years of Canadian Confederation with exhibition celebrating rich and diverse visual arts heritage

Fredericton, NB, April 20, 2017 — The Beaverbrook Art Gallery will launch its celebration of Canada’s sesquicentennial year with a large-scale, commemorative exhibition. The exhibition, Canadian Mosaic: Celebrating 150 Years of Art from the Permanent Collection, will span multiple rooms and will showcase a variety of Canadian art. The public is cordially invited to attend the opening reception at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery of the new exhibition on Saturday, April 29th, 2017 at 5pm.

In honour of Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation, Chief Curator Jeffrey Spalding will fill five galleries with artworks to encourage visitors to explore the development of Canadian art through the Beaverbrook Art Gallery’s permanent collection. Different gallery spaces will focus on different periods in Canadian art – historical, modern and contemporary – with an additional presentation highlighting the art of Atlantic Canada.

“Through the nearly six decades of its history,” he says, “the Gallery has amassed a fine overview of the principal artists associated with our nation.” Canadian Mosaic will showcase some of the most admired works in the collection by artists across the decades: Cornelius Krieghoff, Paul Kane, J. W. Morrice, Emily Carr, David Milne, Lawren Harris, Tom Thomson, Jean-Paul Riopelle, Paul-Émile Borduas, Alex Colville, Mary Pratt, Jack Humphrey, Molly Bobak, Carl Beam and many more. As one particularly fitting inclusion, the Gallery will unveil a recently-donated 19th Century sculptural portrait of Sir George-Étienne Cartier, co-premier of the Province of Canada and Father of Confederation.

Spalding’s aspiration for the project is to send a love letter to Canada on the occasion of its 150th birthday. “Our presentation is a mosaic,” he continues, “of the extraordinary variety of approaches, ideas and feelings represented by Canadian art, coast to coast to coast and over the decades. We hope visitors will find the artworks in this exhibition inspiring.”

However, he cautions that, “it would be impossible to use the project to even attempt to construct a portrait of the art of the nation. The country is too vast: our demographics, cultural, ethnic, and geographic differences are wide-ranging. Invariably, someone and something would be left out. A mosaic, after all, is an image made up of fragments of other objects.”

Canadian Mosaic will be on display all summer, through September 10, allowing visitors from New Brunswick and away to make it part of their Canada 150 celebrations.

Also remaining on display through the summer are some of the Gallery’s most prized international artworks. Masterworks: Homecoming—A Celebratory Selection from the International Collection, invites visitors to explore another facet of the Gallery’s collection. Though not by Canadian artists, by virtue of the collection’s history and of Lord Beaverbrook, these works have also become part of a Canadian story.


About the exhibitions:

Canadian Mosaic: Celebrating 150 Years of Art from the Permanent Collection is curated by Jeffrey Spalding and organized by the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. The exhibition is on display from April 29, 2017 through September 10, 2017.

Masterworks: Homecoming – A Celebratory Selection from the International Collection is curated by Terry Graff and Jeffrey Spalding and organized by the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. The exhibition is on display in the Harriet Irving Gallery from February 11, 2017 through September 10, 2017.
