Canadian Environment & Safety Library™

This comprehensive, fully-linked resource gives you easy access to all of Canada's environmental and occupational safety and health laws and regulations — federal, provincial, and territorial.




Access a database of Canada’s more than 2,100 federal, provincial, and territorial environmental, occupational health and safety, and workers’ compensation acts, regulations, guidelines, and codes of practice. Get online subscription packages of national and regional legislation by topic — air, hazardous materials, health and safety, land, remediation, renewable energy, sustainability, waste, and water. 

The Library is designed for anyone who deals with or has facilities in Canada, including U.S. businesses, consultants, attorneys, border-based manufacturers, and contiguous multinationals.


Know that our expert editors read the latest bills and gazettes from all jurisdictions, keeping you up-to-date on the most recent legislation and amendments. Understand the institutional framework of environment and safety programs throughout Canada. Avoid costly fines for non-compliance with Canadian requirements, and be familiar with the Canadian perspective on such issues as NAFTA, global warming, acid rain, shipping, mining, workplace safety, and workers' compensation.
