ANNEX

Summary of the Screening Assessment of Triclosan

The substance Triclosan (5-chloro-2-(2,4-dichlorophenoxy) phenol) is used as a material preservative and as an antimicrobial ingredient in a variety of consumer products to stop the growth of bacteria, fungi and mildew and to deodorize.

The potential sources of exposure to triclosan for Canadians include consumer products treated with or containing triclosan (including, but not limited to, cosmetic products, treated textiles and food contact materials, such as cutting boards and countertops), drinking water contaminated with triclosan, breast milk and contaminated household dust.

Exposure of the general population to triclosan was characterized using the available biomonitoring data for triclosan from the U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). In the absence of Canadian-specific data for the general population, the biomonitoring data for the U.S. population were used. These data encompass exposures to triclosan from all potential sources and routes, and are considered the most accurate estimates of total exposure of the general population in Canada to triclosan given the similarities in registered uses under the Pest Control Products Act (PCPA) and Food and Drugs Act and the availability of products treated with or containing triclosan on the U.S. and Canadian markets. Additional Canadian biomonitoring data were used to characterize the exposure of children under six years of age to triclosan.

Risk to human health from exposure to triclosan is estimated by comparing mean and upper-bounding exposure estimates in humans with critical effect levels in health effects studies conducted in laboratory animals in order to derive margins of exposure (MOEs). For the general population, comparison of the estimated mean and upper-bound daily intakes with critical effect levels in mice (based on liver effects) resulted in MOEs between 700 and 13 000. Children under six year of age were not included in NHANES; therefore, exposure for this subpopulation was derived separately and included potential exposures via breast milk, household dust and mouthing of triclosan-treated plastic products. Comparison of exposure estimates with the critical effect levels resulted in MOEs greater than 988. These MOEs were considered adequate to address uncertainties in the health effects and exposure databases for triclosan.

Due to its use in many consumer products, triclosan reaches wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), where it is partially removed from wastewater. It is released to aquatic ecosystems as part of WWTP effluents. Since some triclosan partitions to sludge during the wastewater treatment process, triclosan also reaches terrestrial ecosystems when sewage sludge is spread on land.

The substance triclosan is not persistent in air, water, soil or sediment under aerobic conditions. It does not meet any of the criteria for persistence under the Persistence and Bioaccumulation Regulations of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999) or the Toxic Substances Management Policy. However, its continual input to surface water through WWTP effluents is likely to result in its continuous presence in receiving aquatic ecosystems. Based on bioconcentration data about fish, triclosan is bioaccumulative and meets the criteria for bioaccumulation under the Persistence and Bioaccumulation Regulations and the Toxic Substances Management Policy. There is also evidence of accumulation in algae, macrophytes and invertebrates.

Since triclosan is expected to be continuously present in certain aquatic ecosystems, organisms that live in these environments are likely to be exposed to this substance on a chronic basis. Triclosan has a high inherent toxicity to a variety of aquatic organisms, such as algae, macrophytes, invertebrates, amphibians and fish. Adverse effects on these organisms include reduction in growth, reproduction and survival. Based on the numerous toxicity data available, a predicted no-effect concentration of 115 ng/L was derived. Triclosan may also interfere with the action of thyroid hormones in amphibians at environmentally relevant concentrations.

Measured data for concentrations of triclosan at WWTPs as well as in receiving surface water were used to estimate exposure of aquatic organisms. Measured concentrations of triclosan in surface water and a nationwide exposure scenario based on concentrations of triclosan in the influent of numerous WWTPs indicate that triclosan may have harmful effects on aquatic organisms, especially in the vicinity of certain WWTPs.

While triclosan does not seem to accumulate in terrestrial organisms, there is some potential for adverse effects on soil organisms exposed to it through the spreading of sewage sludge on agricultural soils.

Based on the adequacy of the MOEs between estimates of aggregated exposure to triclosan and critical effect levels, it is proposed that triclosan is not entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that constitute or may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health.

Based on the information presented in this preliminary assessment, it is proposed that triclosan is entering or may enter the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that have or may have an immediate or long-term harmful effect on the environment or its biological diversity. Therefore, it is proposed to conclude that triclosan meets the criterion set out under paragraph 64(a) of CEPA 1999. It is also proposed to conclude that triclosan meets the criterion for bioaccumulation but not the criteria for persistence as set out in the Persistence and Bioaccumulation Regulations.

Proposed conclusion

Based on available information for environmental and human health considerations, it is proposed that triclosan meets one or more of the criteria set out in section 64 of CEPA 1999.

The draft screening assessment as well as the risk management scope document for this substance is available on the Government of Canada’s Chemical Substances Web site (www. chemicalsubstances.gc.ca).

NOTICE OF VACANCY

CANADA MORTGAGE AND HOUSING CORPORATION

Chairperson (part-time position)

Location: Ottawa, Ontario

The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) is a Crown corporation which reports to the Parliament of Canada through the Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development and is governed by a board of directors that is accountable for the overall stewardship of the Corporation. CMHC has been helping to house Canadians for over 65 years, and is committed to housing quality, affordability and choice for Canadians.

The Board of Directors manages the affairs of the Corporation and the conduct of its business in accordance with the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation Act, the National Housing Act, the Financial Administration Act and the Corporation’s governing by-laws. The nature of CMHC’s activities makes its governance quite complex but nonetheless subject to the same expectations of efficiency, accountability and transparency that Canadians hold for all of their public agencies. CMHC ranks as the largest federal Crown corporation with $13 billion in annual revenues and approximately $293 billion in assets.

The Corporation has operated its mortgage loan insurance business on a commercial basis at no cost to the Canadian taxpayer since the mid-1990s.

The successful candidate should possess an understanding of the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation Act, the National Housing Act and the Financial Administration Act as well as CMHC’s mandate and activities. The position also requires a solid understanding of corporate governance and risk management, financial expertise and literacy in addition to knowledge of the Government’s role in housing and its social, economic and fiscal policies and priorities. Knowledge of the roles and responsibilities of the Chairperson and Board of Directors is also required.

The position requires an individual who possesses superior communication skills, both written and oral, and the ability to develop and maintain effective working relationships with management, the Minister and his/her office, the President and CMHC’s partners and stakeholders. The Chairperson also acts as the spokesperson when dealing with stakeholders, media, public institutions, Government and other organizations. The preferred candidate will possess strong financial and business acumen and in-depth knowledge of risk management and analysis. The ability to assess management recommendations and provide direction and guidance to senior management as well as anticipate emerging issues and develop strategies to enable the Board to seize opportunities or solve problems is also required. The position requires the ability to foster debate and discussions among Board members, to build Board consensus, deal with ambiguity and manage uncertainty and conflicts, should they arise.

To achieve its objectives and carry out its mandate, the Chairperson should possess high ethical standards and bring strong leadership and interpersonal skills, sound judgment, integrity, and be a consensus-builder and strategic thinking with demonstrated decision-making skills.

Proficiency in both official languages would be preferred.

The successful candidate must be available for approximately 12 to 16 meetings a year and a minimum of 30 days per year for Board and committee activities and related travel.
