OUR PRIORITIES

  • Work collectively to reduce toxins in the environment.

  • Eliminate substances of high concern.

  • Make a critical change to the onus of proof for toxics by establishing a "no data, no market" approach to approvals. This approach would place the responsibility on industry to prove that chemicals are safe before they go to market.

The Coalition for Action on Toxics supports the following approaches of our coalition partners:

Building public awareness, concern, and engagement regarding toxic chemicals and pesticides.

PUBLIC AWARENESS

 Pursuing precedent-setting litigation around toxics and pesticides. 

LITIGATION

​Seizing policy and legislative opportunities to achieve meaningful changes to the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, the Pest Control Products Act, and related legislation and policies.
