CONCORD, Ont. - An Ontario-based aerosol manufacturer has been ordered to pay $170,000 after pleading guilty to two environmental offences.

The federal government says its enforcement investigators began looking into K-G Spray-Pak Inc. in February 2017.

It says they found the company had failed to comply with an environmental protection compliance order that Environment and Climate Change Canada had issued the previous year.

The government says the Concord, Ont.-based company was then charged after it failed to implement and test environmental emergency plans within a prescribed time limit.

The company was ordered to pay the fine on Tuesday, after pleading guilty to one count of violating the Environmental Emergency Regulations and one count of failing to comply with an environmental protection compliance order.

The government says the company's name will now be added to the Environmental Offenders Registry.
