Reduce Auto Emissions Petition

Bow Valley Clean Air Society

Since we can’t eliminate the use of cars all together, help us ensure that Canada’s outdated vehicle emissions standards are drastically improved. By adopting standards equivalent to California’s Clean Cars law, we would reduce carbon emissions from cars by 30 per cent by 2016, using only existing and available technology. Please sign this petition, which asks the Alberta Government to adopt the California standards for vehicle emissions. Read more »

Call for Delegate: Clean Air Strategic Alliance Board of Directors

Initiative: 
CASA Board Member
Application Deadline: 
29 May 2008 (All day)
Background: 

The Clean Air Strategic Alliance (CASA) is a multi-stakeholder organization made up of representatives of industry, government, and environmental organizations which develops and recommends strategies to assess and improve air quality in Alberta.

It is governed by a board of directors who are appointed by their sectors in accordance with the principle of sectoral self-selection. There are six ENGO representatives on the CASA board; nominally three board members and three alternates, but alternates have the same participation rights as the primary members.

At the 2005 AEN general meeting, AEN members established a policy of requiring renewal of ENGO board members and alternates on three-year terms.

At the 2007 AEN general meeting, in accordance with this policy, one CASA board member and alternate will stand for re-election to the CASA board. At this time, any other qualified AEN member may also stand for election to the CASA board.

Call for Delegate: Ambient Air Quality Objectives Stakeholder Advisory Committee

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

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.

Purpose:

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

Tasks:

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
