could there be another column to showcase which substances are toxic or non-toxic SNAcs?
Significant New Activity Publications under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999
This dataset includes all significant new activity (SNAc) orders and notices published under the authority of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA). The SNAc provisions of CEPA may be applied to a substance or living organism when Environment and Climate Change Canada and Health Canada suspect that a significant new activity in relation to the substance or living organism may pose new or increased risks to the environment or to human health.
Information is organized by substance and includes links to relevant Canada Gazette publications. Confidential accession numbers and masked names have been presented for confidential substances.
Although great care has been taken to ensure the information herein accurately reflects the requirements prescribed in CEPA, you are advised that, should any inconsistencies be found, the legal documents, published in the Canada Gazette, will prevail.
Please note that substances on the Domestic Substances List (DSL) may be presented with a flag next to the substance identification number in official Canada Gazette publications. These flags are included in a separate column in the dataset, and are as follows: S: The “S” flag indicates that the SNAc provisions of CEPA apply to the substance. S': The “S'” (S prime) flag indicates that the SNAc provisions of CEPA apply to a substance that was already listed on the DSL. P: The “P” flag indicates that the substance was assessed and added to the DSL on the basis that it met the Reduced Regulatory Requirement polymer criteria. T: The “T” flag indicates that the substance was manufactured or imported during the transitional period (January 1, 1987 to July 1, 1994). N: The “N” flag indicates that the substance was manufactured or imported after July 1, 1994.

Dear Vanessa, Thank you for your question. The data owners said that they will take your comment under consideration in future updates of this resource. They included this note: "the significant new activity (SNAc) provisions of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA) may apply to a substance whether it has been found to meet the criteria for toxicity under section 64 of CEPA, or not. You can verify whether a substance was found to meet the criteria of section 64 of (CEPA) by referring to the screening assessment for that substance (or group of substances). The table provides the URL to the screening assessment publication for each substance subject to the SNAc provisions under the column with the heading “Final screening assessment/Évaluation préalable finale”. If a substance has been added to Schedule 1 of CEPA, the List of Toxic Substances, the URL to this publication is provided in the column with the heading “Order amending Schedule 1 of CEPA, the List of Toxic Substances / Décret modifiant l'Annexe 1 de la LCPE, la Liste des substances toxiques”." Regards, Kent on behalf of the Open Government team
