In the tables, the waste groups are listed across the top row by number. The names of Canadian companies that notified Environment Canada of intended imports and exports (notifiers) are entered alphabetically in the left column. Although a Canadian company may have submitted many notices for the period covered by this Resilog edition, its name appears only once in each table. Therefore, each notifier may have more than one permit per waste group.

For exports and imports, a two-letter code representing the name of the country of origin (imports) or destination (exports) is used. If a Canadian company has provided multiple notices in which the countries of origin or destination differ, the countries of origin (imports) or destination (exports) are identified with a one-letter code.

For transits, the two-letter code represents the name of the country of origin and destination. If the countries of origin and destination are different, then a one-letter code is used.

The legend of country codes is provided at the bottom of each table.
