In 2009, Environment Canada proposed new regulations to limit emissions of Bisphenol A (BPA) from industrial effluent. BPA is among dozens of chemicals being reviewed for their toxicity. An Environment Canada assessment found BPA to be especially toxic in aquatic environments. Resource Conservation Manitoba participated in the consultation and helped produce the consolidated ENGO report on the proposed regulations. This report is now available. The consultation, organized by Environment Canada to discuss the proposed regulatory provisions to limit the concentration of Bisphenol A released from industrial final effluent, took place on November 27, 2009 in Toronto.
