PROJECT OVERVIEW


Background

The Bathurst Quay Neighbourhood is a possible air pollution hotspot, uniquely situated near three major transportation sources.

Air quality monitoring campaigns were launched to:

  • Perform air pollution exposure assessment.

  • Identify main sources of air pollution.

  • Develop and propose workable solutions.


Approach

The study uses a campus-community partnership approach to address air pollution exposure. Participants include:

  • Bathurst Quay Neighbourhood Association

  • Billy Bishop Airport

  • City of Toronto


Methods

Community exposure assessed through:

  • Fixed monitoring on rooftops

  • Mobile measurements

  • Indoor vs. Outdoor Sampling
