Toxic substances management process: stakeholder consultations and involvement

Within the Toxics Management Process, early stakeholder input may be required to help risk managers make better informed and supported decisions when developing the risk management strategy and management tools or instruments. Stakeholders can include: provincial, territorial and aboriginal governments; municipal governments; other federal government departments; industry; and non-government organizations (environmental, health, academia, youth, aboriginal, etc.).

Public consultations on the proposed risk management objectives, tools or instruments of the risk management strategy will be carried out. Consultations will also take place on the draft of selected management tools or instruments.

The scope of all consultations will vary depending on the purpose and focus. They may range from an invitation to stakeholders to provide written comments followed by an information meeting or teleconference, to a series of face-to-face meetings where the proposed objectives, and tools and instruments are discussed.
