Who We Are

Clean Air Hamilton is dedicated to improving air quality across the City of Hamilton. This will be accomplished through sound science based decision making, using the most up-to-date information and tools available, such as the Hamilton Airshed Model. Clean Air Hamilton has identified these issues for research, communication and program activities in collaboration with our partners:

Governance & Structure:

To remain a multi-stakeholder group dedicated to improving air quality by increasing public perception and expanding Clean Air Hamilton membership while providing communication and promotion of realistic, science based decision making and sustainable practices.

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion:

Clean Air Hamilton is committed to the principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in all aspects of our community organization and partnerships. See our Terms of Reference for more information.

Air Zone Management:

Comply with Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change and Canadian Ambient Air Quality Standards. This will be done through implementation of a systems level approach and support towards an industrial mandatory monitoring regulation.


To encourage and facilitate more use of public and active transportation through commentary on transportation related matters, supporting educational programs and localized monitoring leading to detailed information to encourage changes in behaviour.

Air Monitoring:

To improve air monitoring activities across the City of Hamilton by providing support for additional portable air monitors and fixed air monitors that provide real-time monitoring for contaminants of concern in Hamilton.

Dust & PM2.5 Mitigation:

Lower concentrations of PM2.5 across the City of Hamilton below Canadian Ambient Air Quality Standards by effectively utilizing the airshed model to create partnerships and pollution inventory specific to street sweeper and dust mitigation programs.
