Explosives Safety and Security
Explosives are essential for many economic activities but are inherently dangerous. Strict controls are needed to protect Canadians from incidents that could result in death, serious injury, and economic and environmental harm. This program administers and enforces the Explosives Act and regulations that govern the manufacture, importation, transportation, sale, distribution and storage of explosives, including fireworks and pyrotechnics, and the sale of materials that can be used to produce explosives. Explosives use falls primarily within provincial jurisdiction.
Activities include compliance promotion, outreach, inspections, investigations and enforcement of the Act and Regulations, testing and development of policies, procedures, guidelines, rules and standards, based on risk. The program is delivered by headquarters and regional inspectors, supported by a laboratory, and also supplies expertise to other federal government departments and agencies and to other law enforcement agencies.
