EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the notice.)

On October 8, 2011, the Minister of the Environment and the Minister of Health announced, as part of the second phase of the Chemicals Management Plan (CMP 2), in the Canada Gazette, Part Ⅰ, Vol. 145, No. 41, that approximately 500 substances divided into nine groups have been selected as priorities for action and are planned to be assessed and managed, where appropriate, over the next five years. These substances have been selected for further action based on the categorization exercise completed in 2006, and new information received as part of the first phase of the Chemicals Management Plan.

As part of the CMP 2, certain cobalt-containing substances will be assessed and are part of this notice. The cobalt substance grouping was based on a common moiety of ecological concern, and the substances have been identified both domestically and internationally to be a priority for assessment. A survey conducted for the Domestic Substances ListInventory Update identified that cobalt-containing substances may have a range of consumer applications including paints and coatings, plastic and rubber materials, food packaging, ink toners and colourants that could result in exposure to humans, including children.

The Notice with respect to certain cobalt-containing substances applies to a subset of these substances within this grouping, for which information is required. The information collected from this notice will inform the risk assessment and, if necessary, risk management for this grouping of substances.

Pursuant to subsection 71(3) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999, every person to whom this notice applies is required to comply with this notice by the time specified in the notice. The time specified in this notice is October 2, 2012, 5 p.m., Eastern Daylight Saving Time.

Persons who do not meet the requirements to respond and have no commercial interest in the substances covered by this notice may complete a Declaration of Non-Engagement form for the notice. The form is available on the Chemical Substances Web site at www.chemicalsubstanceschimiques.gc.ca.

Persons not subject to this notice who have a current or future interest in a substance listed in Schedule 1 to this notice may identify themselves as a stakeholder for the substance by completing the voluntary Stakeholder Interest Form. The form allows the person to provide information that would be beneficial to inform the risk assessment and management of the substances. The person will be included in future mailings regarding these substances and may be contacted for further information regarding their interest in these substances. This form is available on the Chemical Substances Web site at www.chemicalsubstanceschimiques.gc.ca.

The Minister of the Environment and the Minister of Health are also inviting the submission of additional information that is deemed beneficial by interested stakeholders. Organizations that may be interested in submitting additional information in response to this invitation include those that manufacture, import, export or use this substance whether alone, in a mixture or in a product or a manufactured item.

Compliance with the Act is mandatory. Subsection 272(1) of the Act provides that

NOTICE OF VACANCY

PPP CANADA INC.

Chairperson (part-time position)

PPP Canada Inc. is a Crown corporation which reports to the Parliament of Canada through the Minister of Finance and is governed by a board of directors that is accountable for the overall stewardship of the Corporation. Its mandate is to improve the delivery of public infrastructure by achieving better value, timeliness and accountability to taxpayers, through public-private partnerships (P3s).

P3s are an alternative method for delivering large and complex public infrastructure projects. They offer three major benefits: better cost and delay controls, optimization of risk and resources, and innovation. P3s are typically long-term arrangements using financial and contractual incentives to leverage performance and innovation from the private sector and share risks associated with the design, construction, maintenance and operation of infrastructure assets.

PPP Canada Inc.’s operations focus on building P3 procurement knowledge and capacity amongst federal departments, and leveraging greater value for money from federal investments in provincial, territorial, municipal and First Nations infrastructure with the P3 Canada Fund.

The Chairperson leads the Board of Directors and oversees its activities and is primarily responsible for the effective operation of the Board in fulfilling its duties and responsibilities.

The successful candidate will have a degree from a recognized university in a relevant field of study or an acceptable combination of education, job-related training and/or business experience. The position requires the incumbent to possess experience in areas such as project finance, engineering and infrastructure project development, in particular as a senior executive in the public or private sector. Experience serving as a member of a board of directors, preferably as chairperson, is essential. Experience implementing modern corporate governance principles and best practices would be considered an asset.

The ideal candidate should be knowledgeable about PPP Canada Inc.’s mandate and activities. Knowledge of the current best practices in corporate governance as well as corporate and project finance is necessary. He or she will have knowledge of the Canadian financial services and/or infrastructure industries. Knowledge of the roles and responsibilities of the Chairperson and the Board of Directors is required.
