Ozone Depleting Substances

Canadian governments have cooperated through CCME since the early 1990’s to address the phase-out of substances such as CFCs and halons that can deplete the ozone layer. CCME through the Federal-Provincial Working Group on Ozone-Depleting Substances and Halocarbon Alternatives developed Canada's Strategy to Accelerate the Phase-Out of CFC and Halon Uses and to Dispose of the Surplus Stocks to achieve an orderly and affordable phase-out of CFCs and halons in Canada.
