Our Partners

The most frequent pollution incidents are small, do not pose significant risks to the environment, can be managed by the private sector with oversight from other levels of government, and do not require Environment Canada’s involvement. However, for more significant pollution incidents, or those that trigger the department’s authorities under the Fisheries Act or CEPA 1999, Environment Canada is ready 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to respond to requests for its science. 

Environment Canada works in partnership with provinces, territories and other Departments in the Government of Canada in the prevention, preparedness, response and recovery to emergencies that affect the environment.. Partnership examples include the Canadian Coast Guard and Environment Canada working together during marine emergencies; or Environment Canada working with Provinces and territories for spills from in-land sources.  Other key partners are:

Federal Departments and agencies

Provinces and Territories

Canadian Emergency Organizations

International and U.S. Organizations
