Air Quality Study Results for Toronto Wards 30 & 32: Public Meeting Oct.18

Air Quality Study Results for Toronto Wards 30 & 32: Public Meeting Oct.18

In July 2005, the Toronto Board of Health requested that the City examine the air quality and associated health impacts in the South Riverdale-Leslieville-Beaches area of Toronto (i.e. Ward 30 and Ward 32).

The study was developed in cooperation with staff of Toronto Public Health and with the input of local residents on the study’s special Liaison Committee.

Key findings include:

  • Concentrations of 26 of the 30 substances in the study meet provincial air quality standards.
  • Concentrations of four substances exceed the provincial air quality standards in some locations, some of the time: nitrogen oxides, benzene, benxo (a) pyrene, and fine particulate matter.
  • Emissions from the transportation sector and some industrial sites contribute to air quality issues in the area.

Join us at the meeting to learn more about the findings and next steps.
