National inventory of asbestos for buildings and assets

During the summer of 2016, Privy Council Office (PCO) and the National Joint Council directed all Federal real property custodians to develop an inventory of buildings that contain asbestos. This inventory:

How DFO and Coast Guard manage asbestos in its buildings and assets

The Government of Canada carefully manages the risks associated with asbestos in its buildings and assets. All buildings and assets owned or leased by DFO and Coast Guard that contain asbestos are required to have an AMP. If asbestos has recently been discovered, an AMP may not be in place. DFO is working diligently to ensure that AMPs are developed where required.

Consult the buildings inventory

To find out whether there is a known presence of asbestos in a DFO and Coast Guard custodial building, locate the building in the inventory below. You can search by entering key words in the "Filter items" box. You can also sort certain columns to locate a building by its Directory of Federal Real Property (DFRP) number, name, city, province or territory, postal code or by asset type (Crown-owned or Lease).

Notes

  • Only buildings owned or leased by DFO and Coast Guard are listed in this inventory.
  • Asbestos information for buildings and assets owned or leased by Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) or other Federal organizations is available on the National inventory of asbestos in federal buildings. Inquiries about these properties should be addressed to the on-site facility management organization, or to the appropriate departmental contacts.
  • This inventory does not contain information related to buildings or assets owned by a third party.
  • Buildings that are part of a campus or grouping of buildings are listed with the campus name, as well as their individual building names and addresses. For example, you can find the Argo Building at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography (BIO) listed under “Bedford Institute of Oceanography – Argo Building”.
  • Information on leased buildings was obtained from the landlords for each building.
  • Where the presence of asbestos in a building or asset is unknown, DFO and Coast Guard will be conducting on-site inspections before any invasive or disruptive maintenance or repair work is undertaken.
  • Where there is no asbestos in a building or asset, an AMP is not required.

How DFO and Coast Guard manages asbestos in other assets

In addition to buildings, DFO and Coast Guard own more than 10,000 assets at various locations across Canada. These include small buildings (with an area of less than 15m2), structures, works and standalone equipment (such as aids to navigation and communications towers). These assets have been grouped into the following categories. Asbestos-containing materials (ACM) are presumed to be present in many of these assets and will be confirmed by an assessment.

Notes

  • This inventory does not contain information related to: vehicles, vessels or other equipment and materials that are not part of the “base building” (e.g. fire curtains, scientific equipment, etc.).
  • This list of assets also does not include works that are natural landforms, such as landscaping, open storage areas, unpaved roads, artificial islands, basins, channels and waterways.
  • Marine Infrastructure includes wharves, breakwaters, launching ramps, boat haulouts, shore protection, etc.
  • Site services and grounds include pipelines (water or sewer), wells, fuel and waste oil tanks, fences, retaining walls, walkways, etc.
  • AMPs will be developed as required and may be developed for individual assets or by category.
