Federal

Each year in Canada between two and four million tonnes of materials are disposed of at marine disposal sites. The majority of these materials is dredged sediment from estuarine or marine locations. Under the authority provided by the Canadian Environmental Protection Act 1999, Environment Canada regulates the use of marine disposal sites and monitors environmental conditions at representative sites. Monitoring assesses on-site and off-site environmental effects such as changes to seabed morphology, environmental quality, habitat alteration and cumulative effects.

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.

Canada has the longest coastline in the world, measuring 243,790 kilometers. Many of our waterways along the coastline have to be dredged regularly to keep shipping channels and harbours open and safe for navigation; and this material is sometimes best disposed of at sea. Schedule 5 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA) defines an exclusive list of materials and substances suitable for disposal at sea in Canada, which is in accordance with the London Protocol (1996). They are: dredged material, fish waste resulting from industrial fish processing operations, ships or platforms, inert and inorganic geological matter, uncontaminated organic matter of natural origin, and bulky substances.
