Pollutants in Your Environment - Digital Learning Kit
The National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) is a registry managed by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) that keeps annual records of quantities of over 300 pollutants released to air, water, and land, and disposed of and/or transferred by Canadian commercial and institutional facilities that meet certain criteria. This digital activity guide is intended to be used by secondary school teachers to explore pollution release in Canada as well as to highlight the uses and limits of such a database.
