Pesticide Use and Regulation
Pesticide use continues to be of concern to Island residents, visitors, and government. Government is continually working to protect both human health and the environment. Changes were made to legislation in recent years that have strengthened requirements for commercial pesticide applicators and vendors, increased fines, and banned the sale and use of many lawn-care pesticides. Farmers, homeowners, lawn-care professionals, golf course managers, and product vendors now operate under one of Canada’s most comprehensive pieces of pesticide legislation.
