This guidance document (Federal Contaminated Site Risk Assessment in Canada: Supplemental Guidance on Human Health Risk Assessment for Country Foods) was prepared to address issues of harvesting and ingestion of foods grown at contaminated sites. It was developed as a result of repeated requests for Health Canada's advice from contractors, federal departments, provincial/territorial agencies and others inquiring about recommended practices at contaminated sites, where ingestion of foods from contaminated sites can present potential exposures and risks.

This document provides guidance on the sampling design, analysis and estimation of human health risks from country foods at federal contaminated sites in Canada.

The Federal Contaminated Sites Action Plan is a program of the Government of Canada designed to ensure improved and continuing federal environmental stewardship as it relates to contaminated sites located on federally owned or operated properties.
