ABYC are much more thorough than existing Canadian law which you can read here .....

USCG is also working on this with the plan being to do away with Canada's TP133E and USCG to do away with the CFR's (for pleasure craft only), all to be replaced with ABYC.
They already have an MOU. Timing ...... who knows, it's government. This has long been in the works.
