Canada was one of the largest producers of Asbestos, producing almost 70% of the worldwide supply. This heat resistant, durable material was used in a variety of construction materials in both residential and commercial settings as a form of insulation. Many materials were produced as an alternative to asbestos such as fibreglass insulation and polyurethane foams to name a few. Unfortunately, it was not until 1984 that asbestos was banned due to the long-term health effects documented by workers using the material.
