Air

Air pollutants have the potential to impact environment and human health both locally and across political and geographic boundaries. Governments across Canada pursue active programs – individually and collectively – on air issues. Under CCME, governments have engaged in a variety of activities directed at specific air issues, such as acid rain, ozone-depleting substances, and standards for toxic substances to improve air quality and achieve health and environmental benefits.

Ministers of the environment agreed to implement a new Air Quality Management System to guide work on air emissions across Canada. CCME's Air Management Committee is responsible for implementation of many of the elements of this system. CCME's Mobile Sources Working Group facilitates collaborative work among jurisdictions on initiatives to reduce air pollutants and GHGs from mobile sources.

CCME's publications on air can be found here.
