Deletion of hexachlorocyclopentadiene and methyl-iodide from the National Pollutant Release Inventory: Closed consultation
Current status: Closed
This consultation ran from March 3, 2021 to May 12, 2021.
We consulted Canadians about removing both hexachlorocyclopentadiene and methyl-iodide from the National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) beginning in 2022. Neither substance has been reported on since they were added to the NPRI in 1993.

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 your ideas and input around the following topic:
- whether to remove hexachlorocyclopentadiene and methyl-iodide from the list of substances that must be reported to the NPRI
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.
