Since 1992, the National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) has been collecting data about pollutant releases, disposals and transfers in Canada. 7000 facilities, including manufacturers, mines, oil and gas operations, power plants, and sewage treatment plants, are required to report to the NPRI.

• This public inventory helps Canadians learn about pollutants released in their communities, encourages action to reduce pollution and lets users track changes over time.

• The NPRI website helps users find and understand the data. They can search datasets or the complete inventory database, view the data on virtual globe maps or read data highlights and overviews.

A survey of NPRI data and website users is being conducted to gather information on their data needs and experiences with the inventory and website. The results will be used to make both the data and the website easier to understand and navigate. The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.

Please be assured that the information you provide will be administered in accordance with the Privacy Act of Canada regarding the protection of personal information. Your answers are completely confidential (this means that no individual will be associated with the survey's results - rather, they will be rolled up into large categories to protect the confidentiality of each respondent) and that survey is voluntary.
