"Defining vulnerable populations" within the context of chemicals management - Canada launches public consultation

The purpose of this consultation is to seek broad input on a proposed definition of vulnerable populations within the context of chemicals management. Although the Government currently takes vulnerable populations into consideration in its chemicals management program, there are opportunities to strengthen our approach. Seeking input on this document is a first step towards the development of a policy focussed on enhancing the protection of vulnerable populations through the assessment and management of risks associated with certain chemicals, in particular under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999).
