  Federal/Provincial/Territorial Healthy Lawns Strategy
 
 
  A second government initiative is the Federal - Provincial - Territorial Healthy Lawns Strategy. Working together, experts from Health Canada and Environment and Agriculture departments as well as interested stakeholders from across the country, have laid out a way to have healthy lawns and gardens - that is to say, preventing the pest problem in the first place if possible and then if treatment is required - using the Integrated Pest Management approach encompassing the right tool, at the right time, in the right way.

Pest control products are but one of the tools that may be selected for use. This is a widely accepted practice globally and is in place in many municipalities across Canada.

This strategy is based on Integrated Pest Management (IPM) that emphasizes prevention as well as the safe and proper use of products.

A copy of this Strategy by Provincial/Territorial Committee on Pest Management and Pesticides is included in this manual.
