This Regulatory Cost-Benefit Analysis Guide was prepared for the use of federal departments and agencies as they perform cost-benefit analysis to determine the potential impact of regulatory decisions. The guide incorporates the evolution of regulatory policy and developments in the analysis of the impacts of regulations in Canada and elsewhere over the past decade. Such an analysis highlights the importance of identifying and measuring the economic benefits and costs as an essential input into the design process of such regulatory actions. The increased interest of governments in the consequences of regulation has led to the development of various cost-benefit analysis guides in countries such as the United States, Australia, and EU as well as by international organizations. This is the discussion version of the proposed cost benefit guide for the evaluation of regulatory proposal in Canada.
