The Chemicals Management Plan (CMP) was launched in 2006 as a joint initiative of Health Canada and Environment and Climate Change Canada. The plan was designed to assess and manage chemical substances with the help of existing federal chemical programs.
SMCC’s backgrounder on Canada’s Chemicals Management Plan describes the key programs for research and monitoring various types of chemical substances, and offers a brief description of risk assessment and management strategies.
This backgrounder was written and prepared with financial support from Health Canada.
