February 8, 2024: NAEDA Canada has been advised that they have been identified as a key stakeholder for the Right to Repair Consultations that were announced in the Federal Budget that was released in March 2023.

Canada’s government has acknowledged that given the complexity and multifaceted nature of RTR, collaboration among different departments and stakeholders is required to develop viable options for a potential approach. The departments of Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC), and Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) are all undertaking pre-consultation work on Right to Repair (RTR), including considering the scope and breadth of industries and the approach to realize the best outcomes.

In their statement, the government recognizes that farmers and agricultural equipment manufacturers/repairers could be affected by a Canadian right to repair due to the unique nature of the equipment, the companies, and existing repair practices.

The first step in the process is a fact-finding mission. Being led by KPMG, NAEDA Canada is slated to appear before the consultants the week of February 19th. We anticipate that additional topics such as repairability, interoperability, sustainability, durability, planned obsolescence, and affordability will also be discussed in the session,

Although at this point we have not been given any timelines on a completion date, the Government plans to launch a full public consultation on RTR in the near future.
