Mandatory Alcohol Screening (MAS) became law in Canada on December 18, 2018. This amendment to the Criminal Code allowed police to demand a breath test of any driver even in the absence of suspicion or cause. MAS introduced a fundamental change in the approach used by police officers to enforce alcohol-impaired driving laws in Canada. Prior to the introduction of MAS, a police officer could demand that a driver provide a breath sample only if they had reasonable grounds to suspect that the driver had alcohol in their body.
The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Solid waste diversion and disposal indicator reports on the total quantity and the quantity per person of non-hazardous solid waste diverted and disposed by municipal governments and businesses in the waste management industry, the diversion rate by source (residential and non-residential) and the types of materials diverted. Tracking the trends in solid waste diversion and disposal helps us to understand how waste management and recycling programs are working. It also provides a measure of how efficiently Canadians use their resources, which has implications for the natural environment.

The National Microbiological Monitoring Program (NMMP) and Food Safety Oversight Program (FSO) are food surveillance programs managed by the CFIA to verify industry compliance with microbial standards, facilitate access of Canadian food products to international markets, provide information on the effectiveness of food safety control measures and interventions, and maintain consumer confidence in the safety of the food supply. Under the NMMP and FSO Program, a broad range of imported and domestic food products are sampled at importers, at federally registered facilities (i.e., those that produce food products that are exported or traded inter-provincially) and at retail. Product and environmental samples collected were sent to CFIA laboratories and tested to verify industry compliance with food microbiological safety and quality standards.
