Canada: Quebec repeals the act respecting stuffing and upholstered and stuffed articles

DECEMBER 2021 - HARDLINES, SOFTLINES, TOYS AND CHILDREN'S PRODUCTS

On 9 December 2021, the Provincial Government of Quebec in Canada repealed the Act respecting stuffing and upholstered and stuffed articles (Chapter M-5), with the assent of the Bill 103, “An Act to amend various legislative provisions mainly for the purpose of reducing red tape” (Article 19).1

This repeal became effective from 9 December 2021.

Earlier, similar requirements were revoked by the Province of Ontario (The Upholstered and Stuffed Articles Regulation) effective from 1 July 2019 and by the Province of Manitoba (the Bedding and Other Upholstered or Stuffed Articles Regulation 78/2004) effective from 1 January 2020.2

Therefore, Quebec was the only province in Canada left with the upholstered and stuffed article requirements, such as registration, labelling etc. and thus, the repeal of the Act respecting stuffing and upholstered and stuffed articles (Chapter M-5)3 eliminates the burden of manufacturer, artisan or renovator of the upholstered and stuffed articles intended to be sold in Canada.
