To help you estimate your manufacture, use and release of priority substances, Toronto Public Health has developed calculators. These can be opened using Microsoft Excel or a free office suite such as OpenOffice (www.openoffice.org) or LibreOffice (www.libreoffice.org).
Select the calculators relevant to your operations; if you need help, click on the Guide.

- The calculators listed above are the most current versions. It is strongly recommended to download the calculator each time you want to use.
- The above calculators can help you identify which priority substances (chemicals) your facility uses or releases, and estimate the amounts of these chemicals to see if you need to report to the Environmental Reporting and Disclosure Bylaw. Depending on the processes your business uses, you may need to use more than one of the calculators on the list above – if this is the case, you can add up the amounts using the “Calculation of Totals” calculator.
- These calculators are provided solely as an aid. They may not apply or all or parts of your business operations. You can choose to use these calculators or other tools that may be applicable to estimate chemical use and emissions. The City of Toronto makes no representation or warranty as to the applicability of these tools to your facility or to your obligation to comply with the Environmental Reporting and Disclosure Bylaw (Municipal Code Chapter 423). It is the responsibility of each facility owner or operator to take the necessary steps to ensure compliance with the bylaw.
