Enhanced Pesticide Management Program

Provincial Action

As of March 2013, an amendment to the Integrated Pest Management Act enables the Minister of Environment to develop regulations establishing lists of pesticides that may be regulated differently than other pesticides.

In October 2013, the Ministry of Environment proposed changes to the Integrated Pest Management Regulation. The public consultation period on the Intentions Paper closed on December 8, 2013. Comments received during the consultation are currently being reviewed and have been summarized.

Details of the proposed changes and summary of public comments are available on the Ministry of Environment’s Pesticides and Pest Management page.
