As you can see in the pages on this site WHMIS is a federal or Canada-wide program when it comes to the classifications of controlled products, the WHMIS symbols, and labelling requirements. And each province and territory (jurisdiction) has their own regulations that apply to how WHMIS is enforced in that jurisdiction.

Quebec WHMIS for Employers

WHMIS in Canada is a combination of federal, provincial, and territorial legislation. The federal components are the Hazardous Products Act and the Controlled Products Regulations. When people talk about employers having a requirement to educate their workers on WHMIS, they are talking about educating them on the information from the federal act and regulations.

This ensures that the WHMIS symbols, classifications of hazards, and labelling for WHMIS are the same for Quebec WHMIS as they would be for any other province or territory making the WHMIS course materials standard across Canada when it comes to the information workers need to know from the WHMIS legislation. This national consistency is an important part of the Canadian WHMIS program.

In Quebec and the other provinces and territories, there is also local legislation and regulation for the implementation and enforcement of WHMIS. In Quebec this is covered in the Health Act and Safety (Article 62) and the Regulation on information on controlled products.

WHMIS is referred to as SIMDUT in French and more specific information is available on the government web site at, http://www.csst.qc.ca/Pages/index.aspx
