The ChemTRAC program continues to be temporarily paused as we transition to a recovery and rebuilding phase for many Toronto Public Health programs following the COVID-19 pandemic. Affected stakeholders will be notified once the ChemTRAC program resumes.
ChemTRAC is a program that aims to improve public health and support a green local economy by reducing toxic chemicals in our environment. Toronto Public Health has identified 25 priority substances (chemicals) that are in Toronto’s air environment at levels of concern for health.
ChemTRAC requires businesses to report their use and release of these chemicals to Toronto Public Health each year under the Environmental Disclosure and Reporting Bylaw. ChemTRAC also supports local businesses to reduce or eliminate these chemicals and adopt green business strategies.
