Human biomonitoring is used to estimate exposure to environmental chemicals by measuring the chemical, its metabolites, or reaction products in biological specimens. Since 2007, the biomonitoring component of the Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS) has measured over 200 chemicals in individual blood and urine samples. The CHMS is an ongoing national survey with data collected in two-year cycles. More information on the full survey can be found on the Statistics Canada website.

The Outbreak Management Division (OMD) is notified of multi-jurisdictional foodborne and zoonotic illness outbreaks and clusters by various partners including international, federal, provincial and territorial public health and food safety organizations. Once OMD is notified, these outbreaks and clusters are assessed to determine the appropriate follow up action related to them. The target performance indicator for this work is to ensure 90% of multi-jurisdictional foodborne and zoonotic illness outbreaks and clusters that OMD is notified of are assessed within 24 hours.

It is industry’s responsibility to ensure that they are selling consumer products and cosmetics that are compliant with the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act and its regulations, and the Cosmetic Regulations under the Food and Drugs Act. When non-compliance is identified, action is taken to protect Canadians which may include removing the product from the market through a voluntary recall. The recall process generally includes the cessation of all manufacturing, importing, distributing, advertising and selling of the affected products, as well as communicating to consumers the actions they should take to prevent exposure to the danger posed by the affected product(s). When a recall is initiated, Health Canada’s Consumer Product Safety Program publishes the information related to the recall on the Healthy Canadians website to assist in the distribution of the recall messaging to all Canadians (https://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/index-eng.php?cat=4).
