520 |aPreparation of this assessment began in 2008 with a series of workshops involving scientists and policy-makers from the federal, provincial, and territorial governments and from universities. These workshops led to the development of 7 science questions and sub-questions that capture the information needs of the science and policy communities in Canada. Based on these questions, the goal of this assessment is to synthesize the current state of knowledge on environmental mercury pollution in Canada. Its purpose is to inform decision-making by policy-makers and research managers through: (1) presentation of science-based information in the context of the policy-related questions; (2) establishment of a baseline against which to measure future changes in mercury levels in the environment; (3) identification of priorities for future science needs; and, (4) information to national and international scientists on the state of Hg research in Canada.
