Environmental Reporting
Toronto ChemTRAC – The Environmental and Reporting Disclosure Bylaw (Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 423)
ChemTRAC is a City of Toronto Municipal Bylaw that requires all facilities to annually track and report on their use of priority substances. If your business is located in Toronto and manufactures, uses or releases any of these substances above their minimum threashold, you are required to report by June 30 of each year under the Environmental Reporting and Disclosure Bylaw.
National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) 
The National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) is Canada’s legislated, publicly accessible inventory of pollutant releases (to air, water and land), disposals and transfers for recycling. It is a key resource for:
  • identifying pollution prevention priorities;
  • supporting the assessment and risk management of chemicals, and air quality modelling;
  • helping develop targeted regulations for reducing releases of toxic substances and air pollutants;
  • encouraging actions to reduce the release of pollutants into the environment; and
  • improving public understanding.
