The following policy document is intended to provide guidance and information to the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) personnel and decision-makers and to the public. This document describes the processes used by PMRA scientists, in dietary risk assessments (DRA), to quantify the level of food residue exposures to consumers of all ages.
The following policy document is intended to provide guidance and information to PMRA personnel and decision-makers, and to the public. As a guidance document, the policy in this document describes the process used by PMRA scientists in dietary risk assessments.
The following document is a policy/guidance document that reflects the United States Environmental Protection Agency's (U.S. EPA's) recent dietary risk assessment science policy/guidance paper entitled, Choosing a Percentile of Acute Dietary Exposure as a Threshold of Regulatory Concern (March 16, 2000).
This document provides an overview of the policy of Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency in estimating the concentration of pesticides in potential drinking water sources. These estimates are incorporated into aggregate exposure assessments as part of the process of assessing the potential impact of pesticide use on the health of Canadians.
The purpose of this Directive is to inform registrants, user groups, and other stakeholders about the Pest Management Regulatory Agency's strategy for the implementation of the Federal Government's Toxic Substances Management Policy (TSMP) for products regulated under the Pest Control Products Act.
Aggregate exposure and risk assessments involve the analysis of exposure to a single chemical by multiple pathways and routes of exposure. The pathways of exposure considered in this general principles document include the potential for pesticide residues in food and drinking water, as well as residues from pesticide use in residential, non-occupational environments.
This document provides generic guidance on the need for conducting a human health risk assessment (HHRA) in federal assessments of proposed major resource and infrastructure projects in Canada. It presents the principles, current practices and basic information Health Canada looks for when it reviews the impact statement or other reports submitted by project proponents as part of the assessment process.
Detailed results from the Algorithmic Impact Assessment (AIA) for the Spouse or Common-Law Partner in Canada Advanced Analytics Pilot.
This project seeks to streamline the eligibility assessment for both the Sponsor and Principal Applicant of Spouse or Common-law Partner in Canada applications.
By endorsing this Common Statement of Principles on Shared Health Priorities, federal, provincial, and territorial (FPT) governments commit to work together to ensure health care systems continue to respond to the needs of Canadians. This Common Statement of Principles will inform the development of bilateral agreements between the federal government and provinces and territories (PTs).
Neonicotinoids are the most widely used insecticides in the world. They are preferentially toxic to insects while displaying a low toxicity toward vertebrates, and this selective toxicity has resulted in the rapid and ubiquitous use of these compounds. However, neonicotinoids have been detected in agricultural surface waters and are known to cause adverse effects in non-target aquatic organisms. A wide range of toxicity has been reported for aquatic crustaceans, but most of the studies focus on the acute effects of imidacloprid, and few data are available regarding chronic effects of other neonicotinoids or neonicotinoid replacements (e.g., butenolides).
