Service standards publicly state the level of performance that citizens can reasonably expect to encounter from Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada under normal circumstances.

Timely service standards for high-volume regulatory authorizations clarify expectations and increase predictability in the federal regulatory system. They benefit many Canadians, particularly business, who must seek permission from the federal government to either conduct a regulated activity or be exempt from it.
