The environmental emergency planning provisions of CEPA 1999 provide a new authority for the Minister of the Environment to use a more flexible instrument for the management of risks to the environment and human health associated with the uncontrolled, unplanned or accidental release of toxic and hazardous substances.
It is expected that the creativity and innovation of those affected and concerned by these Regulations will promote the rapid improvement of overall environmental performance and awareness in Canada.
