As part of Ontario’s Made-in-Ontario Environment Plan to ensure large polluters are held accountable for their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, Ontario posts yearly summaries of greenhouse gas emissions by regulated facilities. Ontario’s Reg. 390/18 Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Quantification, Reporting and Verification regulation requires that: * facilities emitting over 10,000 tonnes of GHG report their emissions * facilities emitting over 25,000 tonnes of GHG receive third-party verification of emissions reports * electricity importers emitting over zero tonnes of GHG report and receive verification for emissions Note: April 2019 regulatory amendments to O. Reg. 390/18, designed to reduce burden on the regulated community, removed the requirement for natural gas distributors (NGD) and petroleum product suppliers (PPS) to report their emissions.
Mean 2010 to 2019 winter surface conditions in the Estuary and Gulf of St. Lawrence. Year 2010 was not considered in the mean because it was exceptionally warm. The survey has been taking place every year in March. Surface conditions are described by temperature, salinity and nutrient concentration (mmol/m3) interpolated on a 10km x 10km grid.PurposeSince many years, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) has been conducting annual surveys, at different periods of the year, in the Estuary and Gulf of St. Lawrence, each having many objectives including assessment of environmental conditions.However, these surveys, carried out on vessels, did not cover the winter period.
Shallow groundwater and the interaction of these waters with surface water in the mineable area of the Athabasca oil sands region are being examined to assess the role and importance of groundwater in the regional river ecosystems. Groundwater quality chemistry data is available from 182 shallow groundwater samples collected below the Athabasca, Ells, Muskeg and Steepbank rivers and 2 monitoring wells near an existing tailings impoundment. Additionally 5 surface water samples were also collected for comparative purposes. All samples were collected between 2009 and 2011 and include analyses for up to 60 parameters, including electrical conductivity, pH, temperature, and dissolved oxygen concentration, major ions, trace metals, total concentrations of naphthenic acids, fluorescence intensity using synchronous fluorescence spectroscopy (SFS) and others.
The Beluga whale critical habitat, which includes the Upper Estuary, the Saguenay River up to Sainte-Marguerite Bay, and the southern channel of the Lower Estuary, supports the vital functions of calving and rearing of the young. Due to the lack of information, studies are planned in the near future to increase knowledge of the species. Critical habitat actual limitations could change someday. Purpose
The beluga (Delphinapterus leucas) population in the St. Lawrence Estuary was greatly reduced by hunting, which was finally banned in the St. Lawrence in 1979.
Monitor variations in seabird numbers and colony size in the St. Lawrence system. Survey of over 20 species of seabirds and herons during the breeding season, in order to monitor population dynamics through time and space. Seabird populations are influenced by food abundance and quality. There is actually more than 1,000,000 birds from more than 20 different species that breed in nearly 1,000 active colonies.
