Clean air is essential for a high quality of life. The decisions each of us make every day in our homes and businesses affect the quality of the air we breathe.
We all share the responsibility for clean air – ensuring healthy communities, ecosystems, and a sustainable economy for the future.
Alberta’s Air Quality Management System uses a comprehensive approach to managing air quality. Components of the system include, among other things, regulation
of industrial emissions, tools to address non-industrial emissions, ambient air quality monitoring, setting of ambient air quality objectives, and the continuous
reporting of the Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) for communities across the province.
The Alberta Environmental Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting Agency, airshed organizations, Environment Canada, and industry operate a comprehensive network
of air quality monitoring stations across Alberta.
There are many ways Albertans can participate in clearing the air in Alberta. Simple actions people can choose are to drive less and try to be idle-free whenever
possible. Use transportation smarter by carpooling, using public transit, walking or riding bicycles.
