WE'RE SO CLOSE TO A MODERNIZED TOXICS LAW FOR CANADA!
An updated version of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA), the cornerstone law for safeguarding our health and environment, is within reach! Bill S-5, the act to strengthen CEPA, is with our MPs right now, for a final vote.
The federal government has committed to reforming CEPA, and now is the chance for them to make good on that promise. The bill to update CEPA is on the verge of passing.
The new CEPA represents long-overdue updates to this toxics law, including improved transparency, accountability and recognizing the right to a healthy environment for the first time under federal law.
Tell the federal government to keep its promise and pass Bill S-5 without delay.
It’s long past time for a stronger law that protects us all from toxic exposures. Bill S-5 needs to pass now.
