Our Mandate, Mission and Purpose
OUR GOALTo inform the Canadian public about the potential environmental effects associated with various forms of electric and electromagnetic emissions.
HOW WE PURSUE OUR GOALBy disseminating up-to-date scientific information on the subject of the effects of electromagnetic emissions on the human populations and ecosystems.
By encouraging a thorough implementation of the precautionary principle with respect to electromagnetic activity.
THE PRECAUTIONARY PRINCIPLEIn order to protect the environment the precautionary approach shall be widely applied by States according to their capability. Where there are threats of serious or irreversible damage, lack of full scientific certainty shall not be used as a reason for postponing cost-effective measures to prevent environmental degradation.
