If you think that you have been a victim of accidental pesticide poisoning, call the Centre antipoison du Québec immediately at 1 800 463-5060.
The nurse at the Centre antipoison might advise you to go to the emergency room immediately. If so, she will notify the emergency room staff that you are on your way. Don’t forget to bring the label of the pesticide involved with you. This will allow the medical staff to make a diagnosis quickly and decide which treatment is appropriate in your case.
You will find information about first aid for someone who has been poisoned by pesticides on the Centre antipoison du Québec site (in French only).
