Whereas it is concluded that the 19 substances do not meet any of the criteria set out in section 64 of the Act;

And whereas the Minister of the Environment is considering amending the Domestic Substances List, under subsection 87(3) of the Act, to indicate that the significant new activities provision under subsection 81(3) thereof applies with respect to these 19 substances,

Notice therefore is hereby given that the ministers propose to take no further action on these substances at this time.

ANNEX I

Summary of the final screening assessment

As part of the Government of Canada’s Chemicals Management Plan (CMP), the Minister of the Environment and the Minister of Health (the ministers) have conducted a screening assessment of 19 substances that were prioritized for assessment following the categorization of the Domestic Substances List (DSL). These 19 substances are registered as active ingredients in pest control products under the Pest Control Products Act (PCPA) and have undergone an environmental and human health risk assessment for the purposes of the PCPA by the Pest Management Regulatory Agency, as part of the product registration process.

Based on information collected in response to notices published under section 71 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA), including Phase One and Phase Two of the DSL Inventory Update, in addition to the evaluation of other available information on substance uses, it was determined that the 19 substances have uses that are limited to pesticide applications that have been assessed under the PCPA. Given that no other uses of these 19 substances have been identified, the likelihood of exposure to these substances in Canada and the potential for harm to humans or the environment resulting from non-pesticidal applications are low.

Based on available information, it is concluded that the 19 substances identified in Annex II do not meet any of the criteria under section 64 of CEPA, as they are not entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that have or may have an immediate or long-term harmful effect on the environment or its biological diversity, that constitute or may constitute a danger to the environment on which life depends, or that constitute or may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health.

Although a risk to the environment or human health has not been identified, the substances in this assessment are recognized to have properties of concern. There may be a concern for the environment or to human health if exposures to these substances were to increase due to uses beyond those regulated under the PCPA.

Conclusion

It is concluded that these 19 substances do not meet any of the criteria set out in section 64 of CEPA.

As these 19 substances are listed on the DSL, their import and manufacture in Canada are not subject to notification under the New Substances Notification Regulations (Chemicals and Polymers) under subsection 81(1) of CEPA. However, since these substances are recognized to have properties or effects of potential concern, there is concern that new activities that have not been identified or assessed could lead to these substances meeting the criteria set out in section 64 of CEPA. Therefore, it is recommended to amend the DSL, under subsection 87(3) of the Act, to indicate that the significant new activity (SNAc) provisions under subsection 81(3) of the Act apply with respect to these substances.

The SNAc provisions will then trigger an obligation for a person to submit information and for the Government to assess the information submitted about a substance when a person (individual or corporation) proposes to use the substance in a significant new activity. The provisions will be used to assess the risks associated with the proposed new activity before the new activity is undertaken. The ministers will assess the information provided by the notifier and other information available to them to determine whether the substance, if used in the proposed new activity, could pose a risk to the environment or human health and, if so, whether risk management is required. A notice of intent to apply the SNAc provisions to the 19 substances has been developed in consultation with industry stakeholders.

The final screening assessment for these substances is available on the Government of Canada’s Chemical Substances Web site (www.chemicalsubstances.gc.ca).

Description of critical habitat of the Pugnose Shiner in Thousand Islands National Park of Canada and Big Creek, Long Point, St. Clair, and Wellers Bay national wildlife areas

The Pugnose Shiner (Notropis anogenus) is a freshwater fish species listed on Schedule 1 of the Species at Risk Act as endangered. In Canada, the Pugnose Shiner is found in shallow, heavily vegetated coastal wetlands in five main regions of Ontario: the southern drainage of Lake Huron, Lake St. Clair, Lake Erie, Lake Ontario, and the St. Lawrence River. It typically inhabits clear, well-vegetated, slow-moving or still waters. The Recovery Strategy for the Pugnose Shiner (Notropis anogenus) in Canada (http://www.sararegistry.gc.ca/document/default_e.cfm?documentID=1555) identifies critical habitat for the species in a number of areas, including a number of federally protected areas.

Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to subsection 58(2) of the Species at Risk Act, subsection 58(1) of that Act applies, 90 days after publication of this notice, to the critical habitat of the Pugnose Shiner, as identified in the recovery strategy on the Species at Risk Public Registry, within the following federally protected areas: Thousand Islands National Park, the boundaries of which are described in Schedule 1 of the Canada National Parks Act, as well as the Big Creek Unit of Big Creek National Wildlife Area, Long Point National Wildlife Area, the St. Clair Unit of St. Clair National Wildlife Area, and Wellers Bay National Wildlife Area, the boundaries each of which are described in Schedule 1 of the Wildlife Area Regulations made pursuant to the Canada Wildlife Act.

For greater certainty, critical habitat in Big Creek National Wildlife Area is identified within the contiguous waters and wetlands of the Big Creek Unit to the low head dike, saving and excepting the interior diked cell. For greater certainty, critical habitat in the St. Clair National Wildlife Area is identified as the contiguous waters and wetlands within the western diked marsh of the St. Clair Unit.
