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.

The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Monitoring disposal at sea indicator shows if marine disposal site activities have an environmental impact. It reports the number of monitored ocean disposal sites that show no evidence of marine pollution from disposal activities. Managing what is discarded at sea prevents marine pollution by controlling the material disposed of at marine disposal sites.

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.

Sediment profile imagery (SPI) (also known as REMOTS (Rhoads and Germano, 1982)) facilitates the assessment of the biophysical processes that occur in the benthic environment through the acquisition and analysis of high resolution images of vertical sections and surfaces of the seafloor. The SPI apparatus incorporates the use of a 12-megapixel Digital SLR camera to obtain in situ photographs of the first 20 cm of the seafloor. Because the sediment is not disturbed in the process, SPI photographs provide information on the physical and biological components of the seabed that is not readily available using traditional methods. From 2012 to 2019, 17 SPI datasets were acquired at 13 disposal at sea sites in British Columbia to monitor the environmental conditions of the sea floor.

Disposal statements for commercial and restricted class control product containers used in agricultural and non-crop land sites have been revised in consultation with the Crop Protection Institute and the Federal/Provincial/Territory Committee on Pest Management and Pesticides. These statements are applicable to specific, defined container types and reflect the unique disposal requirements associated with each type.

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.
