Canada’s air quality
About Clean Air Day
Celebrate Clean Air Day on June 5! Let’s recognize how important good air quality is to our health, our environment, and the economy.
June 5 is also World Environment Day, designated by the United Nations to encourage worldwide awareness and action to protect our natural surroundings. This year’s theme is air pollution. Learn more about World Environment Day.
Air pollution is both a global and local problem. It is one of the most significant environmental challenges affecting public health, and one of the most avoidable causes of death and disease globally.
The Government of Canada is taking action on air pollution to ensure that Canadians have clean air and a healthier environment. These include addressing air pollutants from outside our borders that impact Canadian air quality.
Our individual and collective actions contribute to the quality of the air. So let’s do our part to protect and preserve it for future generations.
We are excited by the many communities and organizations hosting Clean Air Day events and activities this year. These help promote simple actions and lifestyle choices Canadians can take to reduce air pollution. We encourage all Canadians to join in Clean Air Day activities happening across the country!
