About Clean Air Day 

Clean Air Day is a movement in order to help mobilize and enable people and organizations to celebrate and protect clean air and ensure their voice is heard.

Air pollution causes heart and lung disease and results in over 15,300 people in Canada dying each year. From traffic to industry, wildfires to residential wood burning, threats to air quality are everywhere.


 Our vision: Clean Air Everywhere

To make sure we have clean air to breathe now and into the future, we need to make rapid changes in the way we all impact the air we breathe. Tackling persistent challenges to improve air quality can result in climate change co-benefits, like improving human health in our

communities and advancing environmental justice. Collaborating through these challenges makes us stronger together.


Clean air is essential for our health, our well-being and the planet.


JUNE 5th 2024




We are proud to present Clean Air Day Live, a fun and interactive learning opportunity for students in grades 1 to 9 across Canada

Join Environment & Climate Change Canada and NB Lung for a live Presentation and Q&A about Climate Change in Canada’s Arctic region, and how it impacts the air we breathe throughout the rest of Canada.

Students will have the opportunity to learn from leading climate scientists, who will help unpack the complex changes happening to Canada’s climate, and what students can do to help.

Ways to get Involved 

The Walking School Bus

The Canadian Cancer Society has put together some amazing resources that outline what a WALKING SCHOOL BUS is….. Like a motorized bus, there is a planned route with scheduled stops. The Walking School Bus has many benefits for children and families including better health, and helping to keep the air they breathe a bit cleaner for EVERYONE

Free Public Transit

Public transit is already the greener choice for your community. Offering free fares on Clean Air Day helps everyone tell that story to a wider audience, and get people on board, literally and symbolically to help protect the air we breathe. 

The Science of Air Quality

These resources have been created to help teach about the science of Air Quality. Along with the sources of pollution, and how we measure its impact, and steps everyone can do to reduce their impact on the air we breathe

Clean Air Day Events

We want to encourage individuals, community groups, municipalities and businesses to organize events celebrating #cleanaireverywhere
