THE PROBLEM

Ongoing exposure to toxics like BPA, PFAS and phthalates is contributing to rising rates of chronic disease, asthma and breast cancer. The Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) is the law that’s supposed to protect us from harmful chemicals in makeup, furniture, plastics and the air we breathe. But it hasn’t been updated since 1999 – over 20 years ago.

The Solution

Canada’s Environmental Protection Act needs to be updated to ensure that disproportionately impacted populations like Indigenous and Black communities, pregnant women and workers are protected from toxics. A strengthened toxics law would also mean that all chemical ingredients must be disclosed on product labels, especially harmful ones. But the clock is ticking - we’re calling for updates to be introduced immediately before it’s too late.
