As a part of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, the National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) is Canada’s legislated, publicly accessible inventory of pollutant releases and transfers. NPRI data helps the Government of Canada to track progress in pollution prevention, evaluate releases and transfers of substances of concern, identify and take action on environmental priorities, conduct air quality modelling, and implement policy initiatives and risk management measures.
