Health Canada Guidance Documents
Health Canada works with the provinces, territories and federal agencies to establish the Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality. Over the years, new methodologies and approaches have led Health Canada, in collaboration with the Federal-Provincial-Territorial Committee on Drinking Water, to develop a new type of document, guidance documents, to provide advice and guidance on issues related to drinking water quality for parameters that do not require a formal Guideline for Canadian Drinking Water Quality.
Guidance documents are developed to provide operational or management guidance related to specific drinking water-related issues (e.g., boil water advisories), to make health risk assessment information available when a guideline is not deemed necessary (Health Canada, 2020).
- Guidance on waterborne pathogens in drinking water
- Guidance on the Temperature Aspects of Drinking Water
- Guidance Document: Overview of the Microbiological Aspects of Drinking Water Quality
- Guidance on Natural Organic Matter in Drinking Water
- Guidance on the Use of Quantitative Microbial Risk Assessment in Drinking Water
- Guidance on Controlling Corrosion in Drinking Water Distribution Systems
- Guidance on Chloral Hydrate in Drinking Water
- Guidance on Monitoring the Biological Stability of Drinking Water in Distribution Systems
- Guidance for Issuing and Rescinding Boil Water Advisories in Canadian Drinking Water Supplies
- Guidance for Issuing and Rescinding Drinking Water Avoidance Advisories in Emergency Situations
- Guidance on Potassium from Water Softeners
