Call for Delegate: Ambient Air Quality Objectives Stakeholder Advisory Committee

Ambient Air Quality Objectives Stakeholder Advisory Committee
Application Deadline: 
28 Apr 2008 (All day)

Alberta Environment has the responsibility (under EPEA 14(1)) to develop ambient air quality objectives as one of the key components of the air quality management system.

The Multi-Stakeholder Group (MSG) for PM and Ozone was established by CASA in 1998 to provide input to Alberta Environment on the development of a CWS for particulate matter and ozone. In its final report, the MSG provided advice on the level, form, and application of the CWS, and recommended a plan of action for pursuing air quality objectives and standards in Alberta. Based on MSG's recommendation, a multi-stakeholder priority-setting workshop is held every 3 – 4 years with assistance from CASA to identify priority substances for Ambient Air Quality Objective review and development. Alberta Environment prepares a work plan after each priority-setting workshop to address the priorities.

The last priority-setting workshop was held in October 2004. This Stakeholder Working Group (or Stakeholder Advisory/Working Committee) has been established to assist the Alberta Environment in implementing the 2005 – 2008 Alberta Ambient Air Quality Objectives Work Plan.


The group will assist AENV in carrying out the 3-year work plan (2005 – 2008).


The working group members will advise AENV on:

  • appropriate steps (approaches) for objective development
  • appropriate air quality objectives
  • ways to communicate to stakeholder groups and the public
Time Commitment: 

Three meetings are expected for the remainder of the current term and are expected in June, September, and November of 2008.

Expenses & Honoraria: 

Expenses are available according to the terms of a Ministerial Advisory Committee.

Application Instructions:
