Notice: Consultation on the Framework for Pesticide Water Monitoring Programs in Canada

Current status: Open

Opened on 22 March 2024 and will close for consultation on 6 May 2024.

The Government of Canada has committed to ensuring that Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) makes timely, science-based decisions to support the safe and sustainable use of effective pesticide products in Canada. This involves further strengthening of human and environmental health and safety oversight and protection, including improving the availability of independent data to further support pesticide review decisions, and the transparency of decision-making. Taken together, these elements can successfully be supported through the generation of real-world data via an enhanced water monitoring program for pesticides across the country. The framework is intended to serve as an evergreen document that captures the key elements of effective water monitoring programs for pesticides while recognizing that evolving science and program needs may necessitate changes over time.

Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) invites stakeholders to comment on the Framework for Pesticide Water Monitoring Programs.

This public consultation is aiming to gather valuable insight from partners, stakeholders, and the public. This transparent, open and inclusive approach is in alignment with the PMRA's transformation agenda and the commitment to provide access to information, meaningful public understanding, and transparent decision-making.
