10 Years of Data from the National Air Pollution Surveillance (NAPS) Network, Data Summary from 1999 to 2008

cover of publication


The National Air Pollution Surveillance (NAPS) program provides accurate and long-term air quality data of a uniform standard across Canada. The NAPS program was established in 1969 to monitor and assess the quality of ambient (outdoor) air in the populated regions of Canada. The NAPS network is managed and coordinated by the Analysis and Air Quality Section which is part of the Air Quality Research Division within the Science and Technology Branch of Environment Canada using a cooperative agreement among the provinces, territories and some municipal governments.
The report presents trends of key pollutants from 1999 to 2008 and summarizes certain data collected at stations across Canada for criteria air pollutants and toxic air contaminants for 2007 and 2008. The full report is available for download at the following address:
