EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the notice.)

Users should take note that changes have been made to the text of certain portions of this notice, without making substantive changes to the criteria for reporting or the information to be provided between 2010 and 2011. In particular, changes were made in sections 1, 3 and 9 of Schedule 3, and sections 7, 14 and 16 of Schedule 4.

The only substantive changes to the reporting requirements for 2011 are to the mass and concentration thresholds for selenium (and its compounds). Previously, selenium had a 10-tonne mass threshold with a 1% concentration threshold. Beginning in 2011, the mass threshold for selenium has been changed to 100 kilograms with a 0.000005% concentration threshold.

The National Pollutant Release Inventory — Background information

The NPRI is Canada’s legislated, publicly accessible inventory of pollutant releases, disposals and recycling. It includes information collected from facilities under the authority of section 46 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (the Act), together with air pollutant emission estimates compiled by Environment Canada for facilities that are not required to report and for non-industrial sources such as motor vehicles, residential heating, forest fires and agriculture.

The Act contains information-gathering provisions, which allow the Minister of the Environment to require reporting of information on certain substances. The provisions also require the Minister to establish and to publish a national inventory of releases of pollutants. These provisions under the Act form the primary legislative basis for the NPRI.

For the latest reporting year, over 8 000 industrial, commercial and other facilities reported to Environment Canada on their releases, disposals and transfers for recycling of more than 300 substances of concern. Air pollutant emission estimates for other facilities and non-industrial sources were also compiled for air pollutants contributing to smog, acid rain and/or poor air quality, selected heavy metals and persistent organic pollutants.

The Government of Canada considers the information provided by the NPRI to be vital in its efforts to reduce releases of substances that are of concern to the environment and to the health of Canadians. NPRI information is a major starting point for identifying and monitoring sources of pollution in Canada, as well as in developing indicators for the quality of our air, land and water. The NPRI helps governments determine if regulatory or other action is necessary to ensure reductions, and if so, the form that action should take. NPRI data helps the Government of Canada track progress in pollution prevention, evaluate releases and transfers of substances of concern, identify and take action on environmental priorities, and implement policy initiatives and risk-management measures.

The NPRI provides Canadians with annual information on industrial, institutional, commercial and other releases and transfers in their communities. Public access to the NPRI motivates industry and individuals to prevent and to reduce pollutant releases.

For more information on the NPRI, including guidance documents, annual summary reports, and access to the NPRI data in a variety of formats, including an online search and databases, please visit the NPRI Web site at www.ec.gc.ca/inrp-npri.

Input from stakeholders and other interested parties on the NPRI is welcome — contact information is provided in the body of this notice.

Reporting to the National Pollutant Release Inventory

Reporting requirements outlined in this notice are now collected via Environment Canada’s single window reporting system that was launched in March 2010. This system currently collects data for the National Pollutant Release Inventory and its partners (Ontario Toxics Reduction Act, Ontario Regulation 127/01, the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada National Emissions Reduction Masterplan Survey, and the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment National Framework for Petroleum Refinery Emission Reductions), Environment Canada’s Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting Program, and GHG reporting for British Columbia, Alberta, and Ontario.

The use of a single system for reporting of this information helps to reduce the reporting burden on industry, and the overall cost to government. The system requires industry to submit information that is common to multiple jurisdictions once, but is expanded to accommodate reporting requirements and thresholds that are jurisdiction-specific.

Environment Canada continues to be engaged in efforts to streamline and harmonize governmental data-collection initiatives to reduce an unnecessary administrative burden. To that end, work is being done to harmonize definitions, requirements and reporting systems within the Department. Efforts are also continuing to reduce duplication between federal data-collection initiatives and those of other jurisdictions, to the extent practicable.

For those that meet the requirements of this notice, reporting is mandatory. Obtaining the relevant guidance documents is the responsibility of the person required to report under this notice. Those who have not obtained the guidance documents are encouraged to visit the NPRI Web site or to contact Environment Canada at the address provided in the body of this notice.

Changes to contacts, ownership and reported information

It is important that contact and ownership information be kept up to date and any errors in submitted data be corrected in a timely manner, so that the information provided by the NPRI continues to be relevant and accurate. As such, persons who submitted reports for a previous year are strongly encouraged to update their information, through the on-line reporting system or by contacting Environment Canada directly, if

  • there is a change in the name, address, telephone number, or email address of the contacts identified for the facility since the submission of the report for the previous year;
  • there is a change in the owner or operator of a facility for which a report has been submitted for the previous year; or
  • the person becomes aware that the information submitted for any previous year was mistaken or inaccurate.

Compliance with the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 is mandatory

In particular, subsection 272(1) of the Act provides that

272. (1) Every person commits an offence who contravenes

  • (a) a provision of this Act or the regulations;

  • (b) an obligation or a prohibition arising from this Act or the regulations;

  • (c) an order or a direction made under this Act;

  • (d) an order, direction or decision of a court made under this Act; or

  • (e) an agreement respecting environmental protection alternative measures within the meaning of section 295.

Subsection 272(2) of the Act provides that

272. (2) Every person who commits an offence under subsection (1) is liable

  • (a) on conviction on indictment, to a fine of not more than $1,000,000 or to imprisonment for a term of not more than three years, or to both; and

  • (b) on summary conviction, to a fine of not more than $300,000 or to imprisonment for a term of not more than six months, or to both.

Furthermore, with respect to providing false or misleading information, subsection 273(1) of the Act provides that

273. (1) Every person commits an offence who, with respect to any matter related to this Act or the regulations,

  • (a) provides any person with any false or misleading information, results or samples; or

  • (b) files a document that contains false or misleading information.

Subsection 273(2) of the Act provides that

273. (2) Every person who commits an offence under subsection (1) is liable

  • (a) on conviction on indictment, to a fine of not more than $1,000,000 or to imprisonment for a term of not more than three years, or to both, if the offence is committed knowingly;

  • (b) on summary conviction, to a fine of not more than $300,000 or to imprisonment for a term of not more than six months, or to both, if the offence is committed knowingly;

  • (c) on conviction on indictment, to a fine of not more than $500,000 or to imprisonment for a term of not more than three years, or to both, if the offence is committed negligently; and

  • (d) on summary conviction, to a fine of not more than $200,000 or to imprisonment for a term of not more than six months, or to both, if the offence is committed negligently.

DEPARTMENT OF INDUSTRY

RADIOCOMMUNICATION ACT

Notice No. SMBR-001-11 — Changes to the domestic protection criteria in FM broadcasting

Notice is hereby given that Industry Canada is publishing amendments to Broadcast Procedures and Rules, Part 3: Application Procedures and Rules for FM Broadcasting Undertakings (BPR-3) on new protection criteria to be used in Canada. The FM spectrum has become congested in many centers in Canada. As a result, new ways to increase capacity have been sought based on modifications to some of the existing assignment rules that have been used in FM broadcasting.

The amendments essentially provide protection to the actual coverage of the station instead of the maximum allowable distance for the class. The amendments would still allow incumbents to increase coverage in the future. It should be noted that Canadian stations in the border area between Canada and the United States are still subject to 1997 FM Working Agreement.

Other updates to BPR-3 include

  • a requirement for the applicant to provide horizontal and vertical pattern data in tabular form;
  • a clear indication that the Department reserves the right to make an independent decision on applications that are “short-spaced” in order to improve the usage of spectrum;
  • updated criteria to protect digital TV stations on TV channel 6; and
  • a requirement for a letter of authority for license-exempt low-power FM applications for short-duration special events.
Obtaining copies

Copies of this notice and of documents referred to herein are available electronically on Industry Canada’s Spectrum Management and Telecommunications Web site at www.ic.gc.ca/spectrum.

Official versions of Canada Gazette notices can be viewed at www.gazette.gc.ca/rp-pr/p1/index-eng.html. Printed copies of the Canada Gazette can be ordered by telephoning the sales counter of Publishing and Depository Services at 613-941-5995 or 1-800-635-7943.
