Canadian environmental sustainability indicators : releases of harmful substances to the environment( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Toxic substances released to the environment can harm human health, wildlife and biological diversity. For instance, toxic metals can be inhaled or deposited onto soil and into water, where they can enter the food chain and accumulate in the tissues of living organisms. Some of these substances can also travel great distances by air. The Releases of Harmful Substances to the Environment indicators track releases of mercury (Hg), lead (Pb) and cadmium (Cd) and their compounds to air and water. These substances are listed as toxic1 under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999), so their release to the environment is closely monitored. The latest available data from the Air Pollutant Emissions Inventory (APEI) and reported facility releases from the National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) are used to calculate these indicators"--Page 6

Measuring Environment Canada's research and development performance (2014)( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Science is the foundation of Environment Canada's work. Research and development (R & D) supports many of the Department's science-based functions, including its legislative obligations, commitment to be a world class regulator, enforcement activities, weather services and policy development. R & D is an integral component of the Department's science; as such, regular assessment is important. The objective of this report is to provide an updated assessment of Environment Canada's R & D performance. The report establishes baseline measures of R & D performance according to the principles of Environment Canada's Science Strategy 2014-2019: Relevance, Transparency, Responsiveness, Excellence and Collaboration. Where possible, the report compares current and past performance, as assessed in the 2009 report Measuring Environment Canada's Research and Development Performance. In order to clearly distinguish R & D from other scientific work, this report draws on Statistics Canada definitions. Science and technology (S & T) includes two elements: R & D and related scientific activities (RSA). R & D activities focus on the production of new scientific knowledge. RSA, such as monitoring, focus on applying existing scientific knowledge
Canadian environmental sustainability indicators : species at risk population trends( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The indicator provides an assessment of the recovery trends of species at risk that: i) are included on the List of Wildlife Species at Risk under the federal Species at Risk Act, ii) have a final recovery strategy or management plan that contains population objectives, iii) are determined to be biologically and technically feasible to recover if listed as Extirpated, Endangered or Threatened, and iv) have been reassessed by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada since the final recovery document (recovery strategy or management plan) was published. Recovery strategies and management plans are as varied as the biology of, and threats to, the species they address. Recovery documents contain overall objectives which often relate to population numbers and distribution. The documents consider the current and past abundance and distribution of the species, and also recommend approaches for recovery or conservation"--Description, p. 6

Recovery strategy for common nighthawk (Chordeiles minor) in Canada by Environment Canada( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The recovery of the Common Nighthawk in Canada is considered feasible; however, there are several unknown factors associated with its potential for recovery. Despite these unknowns and in keeping with the precautionary principle, this recovery strategy has been prepared as per section 41(1) of SARA. The short-term population objective for the Common Nighthawk in Canada is to halt the national decline by 2025 (i.e., 10 years after this recovery strategy is posted on the Species at Risk Public Registry), while ensuring the population does not decrease more than 10% over this time. The long-term (after 2025) population objective is to ensure a positive 10-year population trend for the Common Nighthawk in Canada. The distribution objective for Common Nighthawk is to maintain the current extent of occurrence (i.e., the area that encompasses the geographic distribution of all known populations) in Canada. Broad strategies to be taken to address the threats to the survival and recovery of Common Nighthawk are presented in section 6.2: Strategic Direction for Recovery. At present, the available information is not adequate to identify the habitat necessary for the survival or recovery of the Common Nighthawk in Canada. A schedule of studies is included to obtain the information needed for the identification of critical habitat. One or more action plans for Common Nighthawk will be posted on the Species at Risk Public Registry within the five years following the posting of this recovery strategy
Levels of human exposure to harmful substances( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Levels of Human Exposure to Harmful Substances indicator presents the concentrations of select environmental chemicals in the Canadian population from Cycle 1 (2007?2009), Cycle 2 (2009?2011) and Cycle 3 (2012?2013) of the Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS). The indicator includes cadmium, lead and mercury in blood and bisphenol A (BPA) in urine for participants aged 6 to 79 years, as well as the concentration of 2,2',4,4'-tetrabromodiphenyl ether (PBDE-47) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) in blood plasma for participants aged 20 to 79 years. These results are important to monitoring chemical exposure and to track trends in Canadians over time. The CHMS is a cross-sectional survey started in 2007 to address important data gaps and limitations in existing health information in Canada. Its principal objective is to collect national-level data on important indicators of Canadians' health status, including those pertaining to exposures to environmental chemicals. The CHMS examined 48 environmental chemicals in Cycle 3. The biomonitoring data aids the government in assessing human exposure to environmental chemicals and in developing policies to reduce exposure to toxic chemicals

Canada's biodiversity outcomes framework and 2020 goals & targets( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Federal, provincial and territorial governments have a long history of working together to sustain Canada's biodiversity. Together they designed a blueprint for the conservation and sustainable use of Canada's living resources called the Canadian Biodiversity Strategy. Some provinces and territories also have their own biodiversity strategies. The biodiversity outcomes framework complements and builds on that work. It will be used to identify and link current and future priorities, to engage Canadians in planning and implementation and to report on progress

Nutrients in the St. Lawrence River( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Phosphorus and nitrogen levels at the majority of water quality monitoring stations along the St. Lawrence River were above water quality guidelines more than 50% of the time during the 2012-2014 period. Higher phosphorus and nitrogen levels were found at stations next to agricultural areas along the south shore of the river between Richelieu and Bécancour. Compared with the 2010-2012 period, two monitoring stations saw their status in terms of phosphorus levels change: the status at Saint-François improved from> 50% of samples above the guideline to 10-50% above, the status at Carillon deteriorated from <10% of samples above the guideline to 10-50% above. For nitrogen, a more precise guideline of 0.63 milligrams per litre was established specifically for the St. Lawrence River in 2016. As a result, the water quality at seven stations appears to have changed, even though there were no changes in nitrogen levels over the same period. The change in the guideline value did not impact the nitrogen status at the Saint-Maurice or Yamaska stations. Only the stations at Carillon and Quebec City have data for phosphorus starting in 2005, which allows for an assessment of trends. Phosphorus levels in water entering the St. Lawrence River at Carillon decreased between 2005 and 2014 and showed no trend at Quebec City over the same period"--Page 5
