&/#3&'r#3*&'4 SÉCURITÉ DES PESTICIDES Les agriculteurs qui ont besoin d’utiliser certaines classes de pesticides pour leur exploitation ont une prolongation de la date limite pour les demandes de permis de certification de sécurité. Les certifications des permis de sécurité pour l’utilisation des pesticides de classe B et C ont expiré le 1er janvier 2020. Les agriculteurs qui n’ont pas pu renouveler leurs certifications en raison de la pandémie voient leurs permis existants prolongés jusqu’au 31 décembre 2020.

In East Hawkesbury Township, a moratorium has been established on approving new burn permits until September and other municipalities may also have new conditions about open fire permits.
