What we are doing about chemicals in Canada

Chemicals are part of everyday life, essential to our economy, our communities and our homes. While chemical substances provide benefits, they may also have harmful effects on human health and the environment.

In 2006, the Government of Canada launched the Chemicals Management Plan (CMP) to protect Canadians and their environment from the harmful effects of chemical substances.

Learn about how the Government conducts chemical risk assessments to determine whether substances pose a risk to humans or the environment.
