Government of New Brunswick

Under the Canada-Wide Environmental Standards Sub-Agreement, the federal, provincial and territorial Environment Ministers (except for Quebec) have agreed to work together to develop appropriate Canada-wide standards for environmental contaminants or issues of national concern. Since 1998, New Brunswick has been involved in this Canadian Council of Ministers of Environment (CCME)-led initiative to develop and implement Canada-wide Standards for a selected group of pollutants which includes particulate matter, ozone, mercury, dioxins and furans, petroleum hydrocarbons in soil, and benzene

Information on New Brunswick's implementation plans for Canada-wide Standards is provided below. More information on the Canada-wide Standards is available on the CCME web site.
