South Etobicoke Meet & Greet – May 22, 2013, 6:30 pm – Learn about Toxics in Toronto – New Toronto Library

I’m pleased to share with you important information from DeTOx Toronto

This is a very relevant discussion

Under Toronto’s new ChemTrac program it is possible to find out where in your community there may be small industries emitting toxic chemicals. Toronto is the only municipality in Canada where this reporting occurs.

A Meet & Greet will be held in South Etobicoke on May 22, 2013

The following message is from DeTOx Toronto:

DeTOx Toronto Toolkit

The following information is from the DeTOx Toronto website:

In a partnership with environmental and health groups, TEA [Toronto Environmental Alliance] is proud to release the Toronto Toxic Reduction Tool Kit.

The 8-part toolkit outlines how to identify and reduce toxic exposure at work, at home and in the community with worksheets, guides and resources.

The Toolkit will help residents understand and make use of Toronto’s Community Right to Know (CRTK) bylaw which requires public reporting of toxic chemical use by local businesses.

You can access the Toolkit by clicking here.

Update

A July 20, 2015 CBC article is entitled: “Canada can’t afford complacency on air pollution: CMAJ editorial: Air pollution a ‘silent killer’ that can exacerbate other health conditions.”
