Draft Memorandum of Understanding Between the Governments of Canada, Ontario and Alberta and the Canadian Chemical Producers’ Association on Environmental Protection Through Action Under CCPA Responsible Care®

The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed with the Canadian Chemical Producers’ Association (CCPA) in 1994 expired on December 31, 1998. This MOU was signed by both Environment Canada and Industry Canada.

A new draft MOU has been negotiated and is ready for public consultation. The objective of the new MOU, like the previous one, is the prevention and reduction of the release of chemical substances through voluntary, non-regulatory action under CCPA Responsible Care®. The new MOU includes an annex on volatile organic compounds with specific reduction targets and timelines and is expected to be signed by the provinces of Alberta and Ontario as well. A further significant change to the new MOU is the active participation of ENGO’s including Pollution Probe, STOP, and members of CCPA’s National Advisory Panel, both in the negotiation process and through their membership on the Steering Committee.
