Our Goal:
Reduce impacts on air quality 

Clean air is fundamental to life. Air pollution damages ecosystems and negatively affects human health. Poor air quality in cities is increasingly being recognized as contributing to respiratory diseases, including increased levels of asthma, particularly among children and the elderly. As the City and the GTA grow, levels of contaminants are expecte​d to rise and health risks will increase.
