Canada’s chemistry industry is committed to the responsible stewardship of chemicals. CIAC supports the federal government’s world-leading Chemicals Management Plan (CMP). The CMP is a rigorous, risk-based approach to assessing and managing chemical substances that positions Canada as a global leader in chemicals management.
CIAC will continue to advocate for robust funding for the CMP. In the past, we have co-authored letters with environmental non-governmental organizations to ensure the continued funding for the program. Canada has assessed more than 3,000 chemicals and we need to continue this work to ensure that Canadians can remain confident that their health, safety, and environment are protected.
