    The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The International comparison: air pollutant emissions in selected countries indicators provide emissions and emissions intensity for member countries of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. The emissions of 5 pollutants are reported: sulphur oxides, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds and fine particulate matter. These indicators help to inform Canadians about how Canada's emissions compare to those of other countries. The indicators report on key air pollutants that contribute to smog and acid rain and help the government to identify priorities, track progress, and develop strategies and policies for reducing or controlling air pollution. Information is provided to Canadians in a number of formats including: static and interactive maps, charts and graphs, HTML and CSV data tables and downloadable reports. See the supplementary documentation for the data sources and details on how the data were collected and how the indicator was calculated.

    The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Metal mining effluent quality indicator presents the annual percentage of reported test results for all metal mines that are within authorized limits for deleterious substances, pH levels and fish toxicity from 2003 to 2017. The indicator helps Environment and Climate Change Canada evaluate the degree of compliance with the regulations and the effectiveness of pollution prevention and control technologies, practices and programs within the metal mining sector. This indicator summarizes the results achieved since the Metal Mining Effluent Regulations came into effect in June 2002. Information is provided to Canadians in a number of formats including: static and interactive maps, charts and graphs, HTML and CSV data tables and downloadable reports. See the supplementary documentation for the data sources and details on how the data were collected and how the indicator was calculated.

    The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Air quality indicators track ambient concentrations of fine particulate matter, ground-level ozone, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, and volatile organic compounds at the national, regional and urban levels and at local monitoring stations. The national and regional indicators are presented with their corresponding Canadian Ambient Air Quality Standard when available. Canadians are exposed to air pollutants on a daily basis, and this exposure can cause adverse health and environmental effects. Information is provided to Canadians in a number of formats including: static and interactive maps, charts and graphs, HTML and CSV data tables and downloadable reports. See the supplementary documentation for the data sources and details on how the data were collected and how the indicator was calculated.

    The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Reducing phosphorus loads to Lake Simcoe and south-eastern Georgian Bay indicator reports the contribution projects funded by the Lake Simcoe Clean-Up Fund (April 2007 to March 2012) and Lake Simcoe / South-eastern Georgian Bay Clean-Up Fund (April 2012 to March 2017) are making toward reducing the amount of phosphorus reaching the water bodies from their watersheds. Changing how land is managed in the watershed helps to reduce the amount of phosphorus from rural and urban sources reaching Lake Simcoe and south-eastern Georgian Bay and to restore the lakes' health. This indicator is used to provide information about the state of the Lake Simcoe and south-eastern Georgian Bay basin and Canadian environment. It is also used to assess progress towards implementing the 2016–2019 Federal Sustainable Development Strategy. Information is provided to Canadians in a number of formats including: static and interactive maps, charts and graphs, HTML and CSV data tables and downloadable reports. See the supplementary documentation for the data sources and details on how the data were collected and how the indicator was calculated.

    The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Phosphorus and nitrogen levels in Lake Winnipeg indicator reports on the status of total phosphorus and total nitrogen levels in Lake Winnipeg and its 3 largest tributaries: the Red, Saskatchewan and Winnipeg rivers. The indicator assumes that water in the region would never be above phosphorus and nitrogen water quality criteria or objectives in the absence of human development. It provides information about how human activity contributes to phosphorus and nitrogen levels in lakes and rivers. The phosphorus and nitrogen status in Lake Winnipeg is established by comparing phosphorus and nitrogen levels to water quality objectives. Failure to meet a water quality objective suggests a greater risk to the health of the lake ecosystem. In rivers, phosphorus and nitrogen status is determined by the frequency with which a water quality objective is exceeded. The more often the criteria or objective is exceeded, the greater the risk to the health of the river ecosystems. Information is provided to Canadians in a number of formats including: static and interactive maps, charts and graphs, HTML and CSV data tables and downloadable reports. See the supplementary documentation for the data sources and details on how the data were collected and how the indicator was calculated.
