Mercury: provincial and territorial actions

In addition to federal regulations, the provinces and territories of Canada have legislation, regulations and guidelines for mercury covering liquid effluent, drinking water and emissions from industrial sources. Many of the regulations and acts are very similar; however, Canada is a large country with a geography that ranges from marine environments to the Arctic Regions of the north. As a result of Canada's differing geographic elements, the provincial and territorial regulations surrounding mercury tend to differ slightly between jurisdictions.

Along with their federal counterpart, provincial and territorial Environment Ministers participate in the development and implementation of several Canada-wide Standards for mercury.
