EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the notice.)

In March of 2004, the Government of Canada initiated a phased approach to the collection of greenhouse gas emissions and related information. The program was launched through the publication of the first Canada Gazette notice in March 2004, which set out basic reporting requirements. This notice is the ninth in a series of notices requiring the reporting of greenhouse gas emissions. This notice is part of Canada’s effort to develop, through a collaborative process with provinces and territories, a harmonized reporting system that will meet the information needs of all levels of government, provide Canadians with reliable and timely information on GHG emissions and support the development of regulations.

Reporting requirements on greenhouse gas emissions outlined in this notice are now collected via Environment Canada’s Single Window (EC SW) system that was launched in March 2010. The EC SW system currently collects data for the National Pollutant Release Inventory and its partners (Toxics Reduction Act, 2009, of Ontario, Ontario Regulation 127/01, Chemistry Industry Association of Canada NERM Survey, and CCME 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 EC SW system is currently being considered for GHG reporting by other provinces. The use of a single system for reporting on GHG emissions 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 also accommodates reporting requirements and thresholds that are jurisdiction specific.

Compliance with the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (hereinafter referred to as the “Act”) is mandatory pursuant to subsections 272(1) and 272.1(1) of the Act. Amendments to the fine scheme of the Act came into force on June 22, 2012. Subsections 272(2), (3) and (4) and 272.1(2), (3) and (4) of the Act set the penalties for persons who commit an offence under the Act. Offences include failing to comply with an obligation arising from the Act and providing false or misleading information. Penalties for offences can result, upon conviction (either summary conviction or indictment), in fines of not more than $12 million, imprisonment for a term of not more than three years, or both.

The current text of the Act, including the most recent amendments, is available on Justice Canada’s Web site: http://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts/C-15.31/.

The Act is enforced in accordance with the Compliance and Enforcement Policy for the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999, available at www.ec.gc.ca/lcpe-cepa/default.asp?lang= En&n=5082BFBE-1. Suspected violations under the Act can be reported to the Enforcement Branch by email at environmental.enforcement@ec.gc.ca.

MIGRATORY BIRDS CONVENTION ACT, 1994

Notice with respect to temporary possession of migratory birds

In order to conduct a survey for avian viruses, the Canadian Minister of the Environment has issued a notice under the authority of section 36 of the Migratory Birds Regulations to vary the application of paragraph 6(b) of the Migratory Bird Regulations to allow for the temporary possession of found-dead migratory birds. A person is permitted to temporarily possess dead migratory birds to allow for “swift delivery” of such birds to provincial or territorial authorities for analysis. In all other circumstances, a prohibition against possessing the carcass of a migratory bird remains in effect. This notice comes into force for a period of one year from September 6, 2012. The Government of Canada is responsible, under the Migratory Birds Convention Act, 1994, to ensure that populations of migratory birds are maintained, protected and conserved.

The Canadian Cooperative Wildlife Health Centre coordinates Canada’s Interagency Wild Bird Influenza Survey. Information on where to submit found dead migratory birds is available by viewing the Canadian Cooperative Wildlife Health Centre Web site at www.ccwhc.ca/contact_us.php or by telephoning 1-800-567-2033. Guidance on precautions for the handling of wild birds is available from the Public Health Agency of Canada on its Web site: www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/influenza/fs-hwb-fr-mos-eng.php.
