The Federal Government is moving to tighten regulations on chemicals in the Toronto region.
The proposed new guidelines, which have yet to be published, are expected to take effect in September and will come into effect on July 1.
They will also be the first federal regulation on the use of chemicals in Canada since the Trudeau government announced the Montreal Protocol, which requires the use and storage of chemicals.
A regulatory framework like this has not existed since the 1990s, when the federal government established the Canadian Environmental Protection Act.
Under the Montreal protocol, companies that are not already subject to Canadian environmental regulations must comply with environmental requirements and comply with any measures to reduce the risk of their products being released into the environment.
The Trudeau government has been trying to build a framework for regulating chemicals that will help ensure that companies comply with Canadian environmental rules, and to encourage Canadians to recycle their waste.
But some critics of the Montreal protocols say it does not go far enough.
The federal government said it will regulate the Montreal chemicals under the new regulations, which would also require that companies use the Montreal Chemical Waste Management Program to manage the waste.
The new regulations would also ensure that any chemicals used in Canada that were dumped on a landfill would be recycled into the soil and water of the affected community, and that they would be treated to remove the chemicals.
The rules would also ban companies from using pesticides on their waste and require that waste be disposed of responsibly.
Under its new guidelines and its existing rules, the Trudeau Liberals have not yet announced a timeline for implementation of the new regulatory framework.
“It’s not a perfect regulatory framework, and I think it’s not the right time to start moving that,” said Dan Leblanc, director of the Centre for Global Governance at the University of Calgary.
“There’s a lot of good work that’s going to have to be done.
But there are also good lessons that can be learned from this experience and from a lot more countries that have already implemented these kinds of measures.”
The Trudeau Liberals promised in the election campaign that they were taking the lead on reducing the use, transport and disposal of chemicals, and are expected, in the coming weeks, to announce an ambitious plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from manufacturing and construction by as much as 90 per cent by 2030.
The Liberals also promised to create a national waste management system that would collect, store and dispose of waste, including hazardous substances, in accordance with federal and provincial regulations.
But it’s unclear how the Trudeau regime will be implemented and how it will affect businesses, and whether it will provide any benefit to consumers, especially the elderly.
The Government of Canada has said that the new guidelines will be available in the spring.
A spokesperson for the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, MaryAnn Mihychuk, said that while there will be a range of regulatory frameworks available, the federal Government will not be implementing any new regulations in the meantime.
