The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. These indicators present the concentrations of 4 substances (mercury, lead, cadmium and bisphenol A) in Canadians for the periods 2007 to 2009, 2009 to 2011, 2012 to 2013, and 2014 to 2015. Chemical substances are everywhere, including in the air, soil, water, products and food, and can enter the body through ingestion, inhalation and skin contact. Through biomonitoring, the government can identify priorities, develop or revise risk management strategies, and track progress on policies put in place to reduce or control these substances.
