Emissions of harmful substances to air – Mercury emissions to air by facility, Canada The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Emissions of harmful substances to air indicators track human-related emissions to air of 3 substances that are defined as toxic under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999: mercury, lead and cadmium and their compounds. Emissions to air are provided at the national and regional (provincial and territorial) level and by source for each substance. Facility and global emissions to air are also provided for mercury. The indicators inform Canadians about emissions to air of these 3 substances from human activity in Canada. These indicators also help the government to identify priorities and develop or revise strategies to inform further risk management and to track progress on policies put in place to reduce or control these 3 substances and air pollution in general. Information is provided to Canadians in a number of formats including: static and interactive maps, charts and graphs, HTML and CSV data tables and downloadable reports. See the supplementary documentation for the data sources and details on how the data were collected and how the indicator was calculated. 2017-10-31 2018-07-05 Environment and Climate Change Canada Nathalie.Trudeau@canada.ca Nature and EnvironmentSociety and CultureAirPollution and WasteFacilitySubstanceAssess Toxicity; Manage and Monitor for Environmental Presence of Hazardous Substances and WasteMonitor / Assess Substance and Waste Levels in Air; Water; Soil; BiotaNational (CA)Toxic substancesEnvironmental indicators Indicator page – Emissions of harmful substances to airHTML https://www.canada.ca/en/environment-climate-change/services/environmental-indicators/emissions-harmful-substances-air.html Indicator page – Emissions of harmful substances to airHTML https://www.canada.ca/fr/environnement-changement-climatique/services/indicateurs-environnementaux/emissions-substances-nocives-air.html Data sources and methodsHTML https://www.canada.ca/en/environment-climate-change/services/environmental-indicators/emissions-harmful-substances-air.html#DSM Data sources and methodsHTML https://www.canada.ca/fr/environnement-changement-climatique/services/indicateurs-environnementaux/emissions-substances-nocives-air.html#DSM Interactive indicator mapHTML http://indicators-map.canada.ca/App/CESI_ICDE?keys=AirEmissions_Hg&GoCTemplateCulture=en-CA Interactive indicator mapHTML http://carte-indicateurs.canada.ca/App/CESI_ICDE?keys=AirEmissions_Hg&GoCTemplateCulture=fr-CA Mercury emissions to air by facility, Canada – RESTESRI REST http://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/CESI/MapServer/11 Mercury emissions to air by facility, Canada – RESTESRI REST http://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/arcgis/rest/services/ICDE/MapServer/12 Mercury emissions to air by facility, Canada – WMSWMS http://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/arcgis/services/CESI/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=24&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html Mercury emissions to air by facility, Canada – WMSWMS http://maps-cartes.ec.gc.ca/arcgis/services/ICDE/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=23&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html
