Agricultural products-and-services provider fined $150K for environmental violations

Regina, Saskatchewan – March 14, 2018 – Environment and Climate Change Canada

Canadians value a safe and a clean environment. Environment and Climate Change Canada’s enforcement officers work hard every day to make sure individuals and companies are respecting Canadian environmental laws.

On March 12, 2018, Crop Production Services (Canada) Inc. was sentenced in the Provincial Court of Saskatchewan for violations under the Storage Tank Systems for Petroleum Products and Allied Petroleum Products Regulations, made pursuant to the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999. The Court ordered the company to pay a total penalty of $150,000 to be directed to the federal Environmental Damages Fund.

An investigation conducted by Environment and Climate Change Canada enforcement officers, in 2016, revealed that Crop Production Services (Canada) Inc. had transferred petroleum products into unidentified storage-tank systems—a violation under the regulations.

As a result of this conviction, the company’s name will be added to the Environmental Offenders Registry.
