Ontario Emergency Use Registrations

Emergency use registration of pest control products can be requested of the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) by provinces as a result of an identified emergency pest situation. Emergency use registration is a temporary, time-limited measure to help producers manage a crisis pest outbreak. According to PMRA's emergency use directive an emergency exists when the following conditions are met:

  • a pest outbreak occurs that is causing an immediate and significant economic, environmental or health threat
  • there is no effective product or application method available in Canada for the control of the pest
  • there is no effective, alternative control method available

The proponents and the province must provide a compelling and detailed rationale to both PMRA and the provincial ministry of the environment justifying why an emergency exists and why an emergency pest control product registration is required. For more information consult the PMRA's emergency use directive or contact the provincial minor use coordinator.
