Compendium of Canada's engagement in international environmental agreements and instruments. Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs).: En4-381/1-31-2020E-PDF
"The Convention aims to reduce levels of POPs entering the environment over time; by eliminating or restricting releases of POP industrial chemicals and pesticides, unintentionally produced POP by-products and stockpiles and POP wastes. Due to the tendency of POPs to migrate long distances and accumulate in northern climates, Canada continues to be particularly impacted by POPs and inhabitants of Canada's North are at greater risk for POPs exposure. Canada has therefore played a major leadership role in efforts to control POPs and in the development of this global treaty, and was the first country to sign and ratify the Convention in 2001"--Plain language summary.
