Explosives Regulatory Division

The Explosives Regulatory Division (ERD) aims to protect the safety and security of Canadians and all workers involved in the explosives industry in Canada. ERD ensures that manufacturers, importers, exporters, and vendors of explosives, as well as those who store explosives or sell restricted components, comply with Canada’s Explosives Act and its regulations.

ERD works to keep explosives and explosive precursors, such as ammonium nitrate, out of the hands of criminals and terrorists.

ERD is headquartered in Ottawa with offices in Fredericton, Varennes, Hamilton, Winnipeg, Calgary, and Vancouver.
