Canada-wide Strategy for the Management of Municipal Wastewater Effluent

  • Technical Supplements

  • Background Information


  • The Canada-wide Strategy for the Management of Municipal Wastewater Effluent was endorsed by the Council of Ministers on February 17, 2009.

    The strategy sets out a harmonized framework to manage discharges from more than 3,500 wastewater facilities in Canada, many of which are currently in need of repair and upgrading.  It provides an agreed-upon path forward for achieving regulatory clarity for owners of municipal wastewater facilities.  Performance standards will increase protection for human health and the environment on a national basis. Bilateral agreements between the federal government and provinces and territories will ensure one-window regulatory delivery of the strategy.

    Canada-wide Strategy for the Management of Municipal Wastewater Effluent 

    A Municipal Wastewater Effluent Coordinating Committee (MWWE CC) will monitor implementation of the Canada-wide Strategy for the Management of Municipal Wastewater Effluent, providing guidance and clarification as needed.
