  10. 10. © STP Sample Introduction QUEBEC – ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH AND SAFETY AUDIT PROTOCOL. Preface Government . PART 1: INTRODUCTION This protocol has been prepared to reflect the principal environmental, health and safety (EH&S) legislation that applies to manufacturing facilities located in the Province of Quebec, Canada (“Quebec”). This introductory section begins with a profile of how EH&S legislation is developed, administered, and enforced in Canada and in Quebec. This is followed by a discussion of various topics including the following: • Audit Privilege; • Access to Information; • Contaminated Land and Cleanup Standards; • Property Transfer Legislation; and • Reporting Obligations Concerning Spills and Releases. Various regulatory and other national and province-specific informational sources and contacts are also presented in this section. The section concludes with a description of this protocol in its entirety. A map depicting the Province of Quebec, including its various regions, is provided at the following web link: http://www.gouv.qc.ca/portail/quebec/pgs/commun/portailsregionaux?lang=en (last accessed in September 2012); a map of Canada which identifies many of its principal cities is provided at: https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/ca.html (last accessed in September 2012). Overview Canada is a constitutional monarchy and a federal state with a democratic system of government. Canada’s Constitution is the supreme law of the country and it establishes the framework for the system of law and justice. It sets out the basic rights of individuals and defines the nature and powers of the federal and provincial governments. Since 1982, Canada’s Constitution contains a Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which sets out certain fundamental freedoms and rights that neither Parliament nor any provincial/territorial legislature acting alone, can change. These include equality rights, mobility rights and legal rights, together with freedoms such as speech, association and peaceful assembly. The federal government, which is based in Ottawa, consists of three separate branches: executive, legislative, and judicial. The federal government’s responsibilities include, national defense, trade and commerce, banking and the monetary system, criminal law, citizenship, fisheries, aeronautics, shipping, Indians, railways, telecommunications and atomic energy. The provincial and territorial legislatures are responsible for such matters as education, property and civil rights, the administration of justice, health care, natural resources, social security and municipal institutions. Under Canada’s federal system of government, the authority to make laws is divided between the Parliament of Canada and the provincial legislatures.

  12. 12. © STP Sample Introduction: Appendix 1-A Quebec - Environmental Health and Safety Audit Protocol: Introduction Appendix 1-A List of EH&S Laws and Regulations Covered in Protocol SECTION 2.0 GENERAL ENVIRONMENTAL Federal (Canada) Legislation – Pulp and Paper Mill Defoamer and Wood Chip Regulations (PPMDWCR) [SOR/92-268; last amended by SOR/2000-102], 1992 as amended through 2000. These Regulations set forth processing prohibitions and requirements for the manufacture, import, offering for sale, sale, and use of defoamers containing dibenzofuran or dibenzo-para-dioxin at pulp and paper mills using chlorine processes, and of wood chips containing polychlorinated biphenyls at all pulp and paper mills. – Comprehensive Study List Regulations [SOR/94-638; last amended by SOR/2006- 175], 1994 as amended through 2006. These Regulations, enacted under the former Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (CEAA), S.C. 1992, c. 37, identify those projects and classes of projects for which a comprehensive study is required. Projects that are considered likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects that may not be mitigable or that are of significant public concern are included in these Regulations. Notes: These Regulations remain in force during the transition period to CEAA, 2012. They apply to comprehensive studies commenced prior to July 2010 under the former Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (CEAA), S.C. 1992, c. 37, but a comprehensive study report must be provided to the Minister no later than six months after CEAA, 2012, S.C. 2012, c. 19, s. 52 comes into force (i.e., by January 6, 2013). Comprehensive studies that commenced after July 2010 under the former Act continue to be conducted by the Agency in accordance with the schedule in the Establishing Timelines for Comprehensive Studies Regulations, SOR/2011-139. – Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) [R.S.C. 1999, c. 33; last amended by SOR/2012-189], 1999 as amended through September 20, 2012. The CEPA, R.S.C. 1999, c. 33 is the federal government's primary legislation for protection of the environment. The Act makes pollution prevention a national goal. The CEPA, R.S.C. 1999, c. 33 provides for the identification, assessment, and management of toxic substances, establishes a framework for cradle-to-grave regulation of toxic substances, their release into the environment, and their disposal. This Act requires the government to assess substances more quickly and sets deadlines for action to control toxic substances and to phase out the most harmful substances. It gives the government power to require pollution prevention planning from facilities that manufacture or use substances declared toxic. CEPA, R.S.C. 1999, c. 33 also establishes pollution reporting and information gathering mechanisms such as the National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI).

  18. 18. © STP Sample Rulebook QUEBEC – GENERAL ENVIRONMENTAL. 1. Environmental Assessments - Federal Requirements . PART 3: RULEBOOK Notes: The Sustainable Development Act, R.S.Q. c. D-8.1.1 came into force April 19, 2006. Although it is aimed at government management and accountability on sustainable development, it also added an important right to the Quebec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms, as follows: “46.1 Every person has a right to live in a healthy environment in which biodiversity is preserved, to the extent and according to the standards provided by law.” Violation of this environmental right can give rise to an action for an injunction, damages for the purpose of remediation and even punitive damages. See http:/ /www.mddep.gouv.qc.ca/developpement/loi_en.htm, last accessed in November 2012, for additional information. On March 25, 2011, the Release and Environmental Emergency Notification Regulations under the CEPA, R.S.C. 1999, c. 33 and the Deposit Out of the Normal Course of Events Notification Regulations (collectively, known as the “Notification Regulations”), came into force with the intent to avoid concurrent federal and provincial reporting requirements by designating and prescribing persons operating for the province or territory to receive, on behalf of Environment Canada, notifications under CEPA, R.S.C. 1999, c. 33 and reports under the Fisheries Act. .... . Notes: The new CEAA, 2012 establishes federal requirements for the environmental assessment (EA) of projects and creates a new review process that focuses on those large projects that have a greater potential to cause significant adverse environmental effects in areas of federal jurisdiction. In order to operate, the new major project-based approach requires that the types of major economic activities to which the CEAA, 2012 applies, be prescribed in regulations (e.g., the Regulations Designating Physical Activities, SOR/2012- 147, or by an order made by the Minister) to ensure that federal environmental assessment requirements are applied to the appropriate projects. [Regulations Designating Physical Activities, SOR/2012-147, Regulatory Impact Analysis Statement] See http:/ /www.ceaa-acee.gc.ca/default.asp?lang=En&n=B053F859-1#ceaa02, last accessed October 2012, for additional guidance with regard to the implementation of this new Act. The following definitions apply to this subsection: [CEAA, 2012, S.C. 2012, c. 19, s. 2] • “Agency” means the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency; • “Designated project” means one or more physical activities that: – Are carried out in Canada or on federal lands; – Are designated by regulations (e.g., the Regulations Designating Physical Activities, SOR/2012-147, or by an order made by the Minister); and – Are linked to the same federal authority as specified in those regulations or that order; and • “Minister” means the Minister of the Environment; and
