"We’ve made changes to the Toxics Reduction Program to eliminate duplication with the federal government’s Chemicals Management Plan under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 and reduce burden for industry.
On December 31, 2021, the Toxics Reduction Act, 2009 will be repealed and its associated regulations revoked , ending the Toxics Reduction Program. Until this time, facilities must continue to meet the requirements of the Toxics Reduction Act, 2009 and its associated regulations.
As a result of regulatory changes, facilities no longer need to prepare new toxic substance reduction plans or review their existing plans. Facilities with existing plans are still required to report annually on substances that meet thresholds (Government of Ontario, 2019)".

"Proposition 65, officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, was enacted as a ballot initiative in November 1986. The proposition protects the state's drinking water sources from being contaminated with chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to inform Californians about exposures to such chemicals.
Proposition 65 requires the state to maintain and update a list of chemicals known to the state to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity."
