Report of the Environment Canada Workshop on the Potential Ecosystem Effects of Genetically-Modified Organisms, Burlington, Ontario, February 28-29, 2000 / [by] R. James Maguire.: En13-5/00-034E-PDF

"Certain aspects of the use of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) may have the potential to cause harmful ecosystem effects, and Environment Canada has the responsibility to investigate such effects in order to ensure that the environment is protected. The purpose of this workshop was to develop a common understanding of Environment Canada’s role with respect to research and monitoring on potential ecosystem effects, of GMOs, and to identify the next steps required for the Department to fulfil that role. The Workshop results will aid in defining the ecosystem science component of an Environment Canada Strategic Plan for Biotechnology"--Management perspective, page 4.
