Canadian Ambient Air Quality Standards (CAAQS) are the driver for air quality management across Canada. To date, CAAQS have been developed for sulphur dioxide (SO2), fine particulate matter (PM2.5), and ozone (O3) and NO2. Industry associations, non-governmental organizations, and Indigenous organizations participate in the development and review of CAAQS. CAAQS are reviewed every five years to ensure they are stringent enough to protect human health and the environment. The CAAQS for ozone are currently under review. Read More

Call for Delegate: Air & Atmospheric Deposition Technical Advisory Committee, Oil Sands Monitoring Program

Air & Atmospheric Deposition Technical Advisory Committee
ENGO Member
Application Deadline: 
8 Nov 2019

In December 2017, the Government of Alberta and the Government of Canada signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that renewed each Government’s commitment to monitoring environmental impacts of oil sands development through the Oil Sands Monitoring Program (OSMP). The MOU established the mutual intentions of both governments to continue to collaborate and be accountable for the design and implementation of an integrated monitoring, evaluation and reporting system. It also confirmed the joint commitment to revise and establish, in cooperation with Indigenous Communities in the oil sands region, effective mechanisms for Indigenous participation in the design, implementation and governance of the monitoring system. This includes development of a comprehensive, ongoing agreement (the Operational Framework Agreement, finalized September 21, 2018) that defines the governance and implementation model to guide the decision-making structure and processes, roles and responsibilities, and the monitoring, research mandate, and objectives of the OSMP.
