Ontario plans to introduce new legislation which would reduce pollution, better inform citizens, and protect them from toxic chemicals in the air, in water, on land, and in consumer products. The proposed strategy could encompass new requirements for industry to report on the use of toxics, and to prepare toxics reduction plans. The legislation would also initiate a new authority to regulate toxic substances in products, and determine ways to inform Ontarians on toxics use and measures they can take to make informed choices.

The discussion paper “Creating Ontario’s Toxics Reduction Strategy” is available on the Environmental Registry at www.ebr.gov.on.ca under Registry #010-4374.
