Changes to National Pollutant Release Inventory reporting requirements for air pollutants: Closed consultation
Current status: Closed
This consultation ran from March 3, 2021 to May 12, 2021.
We consulted Canadians about changing the National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) requirements for reporting of criteria air contaminants released from stacks and point sources, and for reporting of speciated volatile organic compounds, beginning in 2022.
Who was the focus of this consultation
The Government of Canada engaged with:
- a multi-stakeholder work group (includes representatives from industry associations, environmental non-government organizations, and Indigenous organizations)
- members of the public
Key questions for discussion
We sought ideas and input around the following topics:
- should emissions of criteria air contaminants be reported from more stacks?
- should emissions of criteria air contaminants from combustion and fuel use sources be reported separately?
- should the reporting requirements for speciated volatile organic compounds from facilities and stacks be simplified?
What we heard
A final report, which will include a summary of comments as well as Environment and Climate Change Canada’s responses and actions, will be available by March 2022.
