Canadian mercury science assessment - executive summary .: En84-130/1-2016E-PDF

This assessment is a synthesis of scientific research that has been undertaken in Canada over the past 20 years to understand the status of mercury in the Canadian environment and the impact of mercury on Canadian ecosystems and population. While several Arctic and global assessments specifically related to mercury over the past 10 years have identified this metal as an important environmental and health issue, the Canadian Mercury Science Assessment, which includes up-to-date information on mercury in Canada as a whole, is the first comprehensive evaluation of mercury in the Canadian environment.
