Metro Vancouver is responsible for monitoring air quality in the region and has released a new, plain language report on the current and future state of the air in the Lower Mainland.
Air quality in our region is good and almost always meets local objectives. For most common air contaminants, our air quality is better than it was 20 years ago, even with the growth in population and economic activity we've experienced. But as our population increases, it may be challenging to maintain our good air quality. Cars, trucks, buses, ships, trains, planes, home furnaces, fireplaces, industrial operations, and commercial facilities all emit air contaminants.
