Programs and Initiatives

Beyond the regulation of pesticides, the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) implements a range of programs and initiatives to improve service delivery for the registrants and consumers, and manages special projects and programs to build public awareness on sustainable pest management practices.

In this section, you can find more information on these various programs and initiatives:

6 Natural Resources Departments Pesticides and Pest Management Working Group (6NR)

The mandate of the 6 Natural Resources Departments Pesticides and Pest Management Working Group (6NR WG) is to coordinate, promote and foster closer cooperation between the federal research and regulatory communities working on pesticides and pest management issues.

Membership includes departments and agencies with a research, policy or regulatory capacity related to pesticides and/or pest management, namely:

  • Agriculture and Agri-food Canada (AAFC),
  • the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA),
  • Environment Canada (EC),
  • Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO),
  • Health Canada (HC), and
  • Natural Resources Canada (NRCan).

The 6 NR WG focuses on identifying, prioritizing and coordinating pesticide research and monitoring activities and on facilitating the timely transfer of results to support decision making. This cooperation contributes to strengthening science-based decision making in the regulation of pesticides and the identification of effective risk mitigation strategies.
