Canada’s Air Pollutant Emissions Inventory Report 2020: chapter 2

2018 Emissions and trends

This chapter describes the main sources and sectors contributing to the emissions of each pollutant and their historical trends. A description of source categories, sectors and sub-sectors is provided in Chapter 1 Table 1–1.

The contribution of each source category to total emissions of air pollutants for 2018 varies by pollutant (Table 2–1), Footnote 1  for example.

The last year saw no significant change in the general downward trend in Canada’s air pollutant emissions for the time period 1990 to 2018. A few key sources of pollutants account for a significant portion of the downward trends in emissions. In particular:

Despite significant decreases since 1990, emissions of some pollutants, including Pb and PM2.5 have begun to rise again in recent years.

In addition, a 39% increase in total particulate matter and 30% increase in PM10 emissions since 1990 contrast with the general trends described above; these increases are largely due to increased transportation on unpaved roads as well as construction operations. Another exception to the general downward trends is the steady increase in emissions of ammonia (NH3), which were 21% above 1990 levels in 2018; the upward trend in ammonia emissions is driven by fertilizer application and animal production.

Notes:

Totals may not add up due to rounding

* - = no emission

0.00 Indicates emissions truncated due to rounding

The subsequent sections of this chapter identify the important sources of emissions for each substance in 2018 and their varying contribution to total emissions over time.

The full time series of national, provincial, and territorial pollutant emissions from 1990 to 2018 are available through the Air Pollutant Emission Inventory Online Data Query Tool. The APEI data is also available on-line at the Government of Canada Open Data Portal website.
