CALA Comment
  1. Environment Canada has been working with provincial and territorial governments to develop a Canada-wide Strategy for wastewater effluents under the auspices of the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME).

    The document below outlines Environment Canada’s proposed regulatory framework for wastewater as it relates to implementing the CCME Strategy. The proposed regulatory framework reflects core elements of the CCME Strategy and includes wastewater effluent regulations and other risk management actions.

  2. Canadian Council of Ministers of Environment has completed the draft Strategy and is seeking a final review of the Strategy with stakeholders. Members should note that the document proposes that all tests must be conducted by accredited laboratories.

    CALA will provide comments to CCME based on consultation materials that are found at the CCME website.
