HOULE, France, Analyses d’impact et consultations réglementaires au canada Étude sur les transformations du processus réglementaire fédéral : de la réglementation pathogène à la réglementation intelligente, Éditions Yvon Blais
Les règlements dominent le paysage normatif depuis plus d’un demi-siècle en
droit public, mais les ouvrages de droit canadien consacrés à ce thème sont rares. 
Ce livre comble un champ particulier laissé vacant par les juristes :  il porte sur les
développements du processus réglementaire fédéral depuis les années 1970.  Il
explique les fondements des obligations qui incombent dorénavant aux autorités
réglementaires fédérales de produire des analyses d’impact de la réglementation
et de procéder à des consultations avec les parties prenantes et le public en
