Thousands of facilities located across the country report to the NPRI each year. We make this data available to the public on this page.
The data can be used in different ways. For example:
- individuals can use it to track pollutants in their own neighbourhoods
- researchers can use it to monitor changes to air and water quality
- governments can use it to help set up environmental policies
We have packaged the data in different ways for different uses. You can search the entire database, download subsets of data, or view the data on maps.
