Who is the focus of this consultation
The Government of Canada will engage 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
Your ideas and input are sought 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?
Contact NPRI to request a copy of the March 2021 consultation document on air pollutant changes before you participate.
