Dichloromethane / Government of Canada, Environment Canada, Health Canada. : En40-215/29E-PDF

"Dichloromethane is not produced in Canada, but is imported. The quantity of dichloromethane imported and used in Canada annually during the period from 1977 to 1990 ranged from 9 to 13.2 kilotonnes. In Canada, it is primarily used as a paint remover (56.3 to 69.6%), as a blowing agent for foam production (16 to 29.7%), and as a component in aerosols (8.7 to 11.8%). Major global industrial applications of dichloromethane include use in paint removers, as a solvent for degreasing, as a blowing agent in foam production, for photoresistant stripping operations, in film processing, and as an extraction solvent for spice oleoresins, hops, and, to a limited extent, for the removal of caffeine from coffee"--Summary, page 5.
