The Canadian Government recently announced a ban on asbestos and asbestos-containing products by 2018.

The Australian Manufacturing Workers’ Union congratulated Canadian unions on the asbestos ban after the decades long fight unions had to put up for the ban on importation and use of asbestos in Canada.

Developing countries such as China, India and Indonesia still commonly use asbestos and it continues to be a problem on a global scale. The banning of asbestos in Canada is strong message to the world about the danger of asbestos and other countries will hopefully follow suit.

The use and importation of asbestos has been banned in Australia since 2003 but sadly there are still new cases of asbestos related diseases being reported each year.
