    6.10 Rescinding a Minute

    A rescission terminates the original approval from the date of the original approval.

    Where it is desired to retract a matter previously approved by the Governor in Council, it is permissible to rescind the whole or part of the original Minute. The effect of a rescission is to nullify the original approval of the matter as if it never occurred.

    The recommendation for a rescission Minute must refer to the original Minute number and date of approval and the Explanatory Memorandum must provide reason(s) for the rescission.

    The rescission of part of a Minute is only possible when the original Minute recommendation was set out in sub-paragraphs.

    A sample rescission Minute is at Appendix 17 (.doc, 49 KB).
