e-Library HELP

The Ministry of Environment has a large number of publications available on-line, accessible through a number of different sites, many through searchable e-libraries. Among these sites are the Reports and Publications link from the main ministry site, but also EIRS Biodiversity e-library, EIRS Environmental Protection e-library, EcoCat, the Ministry Technical Library, Government Publications Service (Queen/s Printer), and regional or headquarters ministry websites. You can access information on a range of topics, e.g., EIRS-EP: air quality, water quality, climate change and community waste reduction; EIRS Biodiversity: wildlife, endangered species, wildlife health, ecosystem (habitat) information; Ecocat: fisheries and groundwater; Ministry Library: a wide variety of ministry published documents); Government Publications Services: a variety of documents published by the province.
