The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators CESI program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers PBDEs in Fish and Sediment indicators identify the drainage regions where concentrations are within or have exceeded the Federal Environmental Quality Guidelines FEQGs for PBDEs in fish and sediment. The FEQGs were developed under the Chemicals Management Plan and are used in various ways. In this report they are used to evaluate the significance of monitoring data.

The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Perfluorooctane sulfonate in fish and water indicators provide information on the presence of perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) in the environment and indications of the progress of strategies and policies to reduce or control their occurrence in the environment. These indicators identify the drainage regions where concentrations are below or above the Federal Environmental Quality Guidelines for PFOS in fish and water. Information is provided to Canadians in a number of formats including: static and interactive maps, charts and graphs, HTML and CSV data tables and downloadable reports.

This dataset contains the ambient dissolved concentrations of organophosphate esters (OPEs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in North Atlantic Ocean (Greenland Sea) as well as a summary of the passive polyethylene samplers (PEs) deployed. Organophosphate esters (OPEs) have been found in remote environments at unexpectedly high concentrations, but very few measurements of OPE concentrations in seawater are available, and non are available in subsurface seawater. Passive polyethylene samplers (PEs) deployed on deep-water moorings in the Fram Strait and in surface waters of Canadian Arctic lakes and coastal sites were analyzed for a suite of common OPEs. Organophosphate esters are poorly understood contaminants in remote marine environments.

Restrictions in the utilization of polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) mixtures have led to the increased usage of alternative flame retardant additives in a wide range of commercial applications. The present study examined the occurrence of established and emerging flame retardants (EFRs) in fish from a densely-populated urbanized sector of the St. Lawrence River (Montreal, Quebec, Canada). Thirty-eight PBDE congeners and sixteen EFRs were determined in fish belonging to three predatory species (yellow perch, northern pike, and muskellunge). The bioavailability of these EFRs in human-impacted aquatic ecosystems warrants further environmental assessment and toxicity testing.

Concentrations of alternative flame retardants and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) were analyzed in ringed seal (Phoca hispida) blubber collected across the Canadian Arctic during subsistence hunts between 1998 and 2013. The presence of flame retardants in ringed seals suggests their persistence and their continuous inputs in the Canadian Arctic environment. Monitoring and research on the effects of these contaminants in seals are warranted given the importance of this species in Arctic marine food webs and for local communities.

The Northern Contaminants Program (NCP, http://www.science.gc.ca/eic/site/063.nsf/eng/h_7A463DBA.html) was established in 1991 in response to concerns about human exposure to elevated levels of contaminants in wildlife species that are important to the traditional diets of northern Aboriginal peoples.

The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Levels of Human Exposure to Harmful Substances indicator presents the concentrations of select environmental chemicals in the Canadian population from Cycle 1 (2007–2009), Cycle 2 (2009–2011), and Cycle 3 (2012–2013) of the Canadian Health Measures Survey. The indicator includes cadmium, lead and mercury in blood and bisphenol A (BPA) in urine for participants aged 6 to 79 years, as well as the concentration of 2,2',4,4'-tetrabromodiphenyl ether (PBDE-47) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) in blood plasma for participants aged 20 to 79 years. These results are important to monitoring chemical exposure and to track trends in Canadians over time.
