Report on the outstanding base-level industrial emissions requirements (BLIERs). : En14-484/2022E-PDF

"Environment and Climate Change Canada's Audit and Evaluation Branch recently undertook an evaluation of the Addressing Air Pollution Horizontal Initiative (AAPHI) – the cornerstone of the federal government’s approach to addressing air pollution. The AAPHI, led by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) in collaboration with Health Canada (HC) and the National Research Council (NRC), aims to improve air quality, reduce impacts of air pollution on health and the environment, and provide Canadians with the tools to make informed decisions to reduce their exposure to indoor and outdoor air pollutants. The Air Quality Management System (AQMS) is a central element of the AAPHI. In 2012 ministers of the environment, agreed to implement the AQMS as a comprehensive approach for improving air quality in Canada. Base-level industrial emissions requirements (BLIERs) are a key element of AQMS. BLIERs are emission requirements that are intended to apply to major industrial sectors or equipment types to ensure that significant industrial sources achieve a good base-level of performance across the country. Since 2012, several federal regulatory and non-regulatory instruments have been put in place to establish BLIERs for many sectors, pollutants and classes of equipment targeted under AQMS. This report summarizes results of a review of potential impacts of federal, provincial and territorial measures that have been put in place since the BLIERs discussions were completed in 2012"--Executive summary, page 1.
