Chemicals Management

The Chemicals Management Plan (CMP) is a federal government initiative aimed at reducing the risks posed by chemicals to Canadians and their environment. In May 2016, the CMP began addressing the remaining 1550 priority chemicals out of the original 4300 chemicals identified as priorities during the categorization. The Minister of Health and the Minister of Environment and Climate Change have committed to addressing these chemicals by 2020. The CMP builds on previous initiatives by assessing chemicals used in Canada and by taking action on chemicals found to be harmful to human health and/or the environment.
