About The Submission:
Decades of use of pest control products have provided us with significant evidence about the adverse human health and environmental impacts of pesticides. The PMRA transformation agenda and forthcoming legislative review of the PCPA will take place under unique circumstances that must inform their process design and planned outcomes. The Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment (CAPE-ACME), Environmental Defence, Wilderness Committee and Safe Food Matters Inc. submitted these comments in response to the consultation on the Targeted Review of the Pesticide Control Products Act, and in particular, Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) Discussion Document, for Further Strengthening Protection of Health and the Environment: Targeted Review of the Pest Control Products Act (PCPA).
