EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the notice.)

Users of this notice should take note that portions of the notice have been restructured and rewritten from previous years’ notices, as part of efforts to improve reporting continuously. The only substantive changes to the criteria for reporting or information to be provided are related to the reporting of tailings and waste rock. This notice contains the requirements for tailings and waste-rock reporting for the 2009 reporting year. The Notice with respect to tailings and waste rock reporting under the National Pollutant Release Inventory for 2006 to 2008 contains the requirements related to the 2006 through 2008 reporting years.

Background about the NPRI

The NPRI is Canada’s legislated, publicly accessible inventory of pollutant releases, disposals and recycling. It includes information collected from facilities under the authority of section 46 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (the Act), together with air pollutant emission estimates compiled by Environment Canada for facilities not required to report and for non-industrial sources such as motor vehicles, residential heating, forest fires and agriculture.

The Act contains information-gathering provisions, which allow the Minister of the Environment to require reporting of information on certain substances. The provisions also require the Minister to establish and to publish a national inventory of releases of pollutants. These provisions under the Act form the primary legislative basis for the NPRI.

For the latest reporting year, over 8 500 industrial, commercial and other facilities reported to Environment Canada on their releases, disposals and transfers for recycling of more than 300 substances of concern. Air pollutant emission estimates for other facilities and non-industrial sources were compiled for air pollutants contributing to smog, acid rain and/or poor air quality, selected heavy metals and persistent organic pollutants.

The Government of Canada considers the information provided by the NPRI vital in its efforts to reduce releases of substances of concern to the environment and to the health of Canadians. NPRI information is a major starting point for identifying and monitoring sources of pollution in Canada, as well as in developing indicators for the quality of our air, land and water. The NPRI helps governments determine if regulatory or other action is necessary to ensure reductions, and if so, the form that action should take. NPRI data helps the Government of Canada track progress in pollution prevention, evaluate releases and transfers of substances of concern, identify and take action on environmental priorities, and implement policy initiatives and risk-management measures.

The NPRI provides Canadians with annual information on industrial, institutional, commercial and other releases and transfers in their communities. Public access to the NPRI motivates industry and individuals to prevent and to reduce pollutant releases.

For more information on the NPRI, including guidance documents, annual summary reports, and access to the NPRI data in a variety of formats including an online search and databases, please visit the NPRI Web site at www.ec.gc.ca/npri.

Input from stakeholders and other interested parties on the NPRI is welcome — contact information is provided in the body of this notice.

Reporting to the NPRI

Reporting to Environment Canada of information required under the authority of section 46 of the Act is done through the One-Window to National Environmental Reporting System (OWNERS). OWNERS is a secure on-line reporting mechanism used by Environment Canada, provincial and municipal governments and private-sector organizations to collect environmental data from industry. OWNERS provides a platform for governments to collect environmental information in a more timely, efficient and cost-effective manner, and to improve the quality and accuracy of data.

Environment Canada continues to be engaged in efforts to streamline and harmonize governmental data-collection initiatives to reduce an unnecessary administrative burden. To that end, work is being done to harmonize definitions, requirements and reporting systems within the Department. Efforts are also continuing to reduce duplication between federal data-collection initiatives and those of other jurisdictions, to the extent practicable.

For those that meet the requirements of this notice, reporting is mandatory. Obtaining the relevant guidance documents is the responsibility of the person required to report under this notice. Those who have not obtained the guidance documents are encouraged to visit the NPRI Web site or to contact Environment Canada at the address provided in the body of this notice.

Changes to contacts, ownership and reported information

It is important that contact and ownership information be kept up to date and any errors in submitted data be corrected in a timely manner, so that the information provided by the NPRI continues to be relevant and accurate. As such, persons that submitted reports for a previous year are strongly encouraged to update their information, through OWNERS or by contacting Environment Canada directly (contact information is provided in the body of this notice), if

  • there is a change in the name, address, telephone number, or email address of the contacts identified for the facility since the submission of the report for the previous year;
  • there is a change in the owner or operator of a facility for which a report has been submitted for the previous year; or
  • the person becomes aware that the information submitted for any previous year was mistaken or inaccurate.

Compliance with the Act is mandatory

In particular, subsection 272(1) of the Act provides that

272. (1) Every person commits an offence who contravenes

(a) a provision of this Act or the regulations;

Revision 1 of TSD No. 123 is effective as of the date of publication of this notice.

TSD No. 123, Motorcycle Controls and Displays, reproduces U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 123 of the same title and is incorporated by reference in section 123 of the Motor Vehicle Safety Regulations. This revision includes clarification of the text concerning the language of the words accompanying symbols.

Paragraph S5.2.3 of TSD 123 was amended to allow a control or display to be identified by word(s) in only one official language if this control or display is also identified by a symbol whose meaning is explained in the owner’s manual in both official languages. This amendment follows the Department’s policy that promotes identification of motor vehicle controls and displays by internationally recognized symbols.

Copies of Revision 1 of TSD No. 123 may be obtained on the Internet at www.tc.gc.ca/acts-regulations/regulations/crc-c1038/ menu.htm. Any inquiries should be directed to Marcin Gorzkowski, P.Eng., Senior Regulatory Development Engineer, Standards and Regulations Division, Road Safety and Motor Vehicle Regulation Directorate, Department of Transport, 275 Slater Street, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0N5, 613-998-1967 (telephone), 613-990-2913 (fax), marcin.gorzkowski@tc.gc.ca (email).
