The subject of the current report was based on a third National Workshop. This Workshop assessed the current state of Canada's research on PPCPas in the environment in government, academia and industry sectors. Invited speakers provided overviews on environmental exposure and monitoring, effects of PPCPs on aquatic ecosystems, alternatives for reduction of human and environmental exposure to PPCPs, risk assessment process and needs, international, industry activities, provincial and municipal activities. A principal focus of the workshop was setting priorities for research, monitoring, and regulation of PPCPs. In addition the report provides an overview of policy and management issues.
