In 2009, the Government of Ontario passed the Toxics Reduction Act, 2009 (the “Act”). The goal of this Act and associated Regulation 455/09 (the “Regulation”) is to help protect human health and the environment by:

  • Reducing prescribed toxic substances in air, land, water and consumer products
  • Informing people in Ontario about toxic substances in their communities
  • Giving Ontarians the information they need to make informed choices
  • Supporting shifts in domestic market to greener products
  • Positioning Ontario’s manufacturing and mineral processing sectors to compete in an increasingly green global economy

In accordance with the Act, facilities must submit a report for a toxic substance if subsection 3 (1) of the Act applied to the facility with respect to the toxic substance in the previous calendar year.
