Identify main sources of air pollution.
Develop and propose workable solutions.
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
Community exposure assessed through:
Fixed monitoring on rooftops
Indoor vs. Outdoor Sampling
