Study to gather information on uses of lead ammunition and their non-lead alternatives in non-military activities in Canada .: En14-307/2018E-PDF
"Canadians are exposed to low levels of lead via various routes including; food, drinking water, air, dust, soil, and lead-containing products. Although blood lead levels (BLLs) have declined by over 70% in Canada since 1978–1979, lead is still widely detected in the Canadian population. Several sources of potential lead exposure of the general population and the environment remain a concern and require further analyses. The purpose of this study was to research and gather background and use pattern information on lead ammunition and its alternatives. The information and analysis provided in the report should assist Environment and Climate Change Canada risk managers in finalizing an effective risk management strategy for lead that includes appropriate actions that address the use of lead in this application”--Introd., p. 1, 2.
