CELA released its model toxic use reduction law on August 26, 2008. This model law aims to reduce our use and reliance on toxic substances in manufacturing, workplaces and consumer products in Ontario.

The Ontario government has stated its intention develop a regulatory program to address toxics and reduce them in Ontario. CELA has worked with community partners to communicate with the Ministry of Environment in relation to developing the model law. A detailed background report has also been released.
