Chemical Legislation


Not all chemicals used on a farm are covered by WHMIS legislation.

Pesticides, for example, have three levels of regulatory control:

These three levels work together to protect Canadians from risks, and to ensure the pesticides do what they claim to on the label. These controls may be updated at any time.

Check with your local fire department personnel if you are unsure about your unused chemicals. If they don't know the answer to your question, they'll know where to find it.
