6. Communicating with Canadians

The Government of Canada communicates with Canadians on mercury in the Canadian environment, through its website. This site provides information on environmental and health concerns related to mercury, products containing mercury, regulatory measures that the government has taken, and steps which can be taken to reduce mercury exposure.

As well, Health Canada maintains a website that provides fish consumption advice. Health Canada also advises Canadians to be aware of provincial and territorial advisories related to fish caught in local waters.

Additional information on mercury in Canada is available from the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment.
