Filling Gaps in Air Monitoring

Alberta’s nine airsheds cover 90% of Alberta’s populated areas but there are significant gaps. Fort Air Partnership, under the auspices of the Alberta Airshed Council,  is working with other airsheds to recommend to the Alberta government how these gaps should be filled.

Comparison of Air Quality Across the Province

The following chart shows air quality within our airshed is as good or better than other locations in the province.

About Us in 134 words

We monitor the air you breathe by collecting air quality data throughout a 4,500 square kilometre airshed. We are next door to Edmonton and with Alberta’s Industrial Heartland within our borders, we encompass some of the most condensed industrial development in the province. Air quality in our region is considered good, as measured by the Air Quality Health Index.

FAP’s collection and reporting on substances that affect air quality is rigorously controlled, monitored and guided by objectives set by government. Our work is transparent, guided by an expert scientific advisory group, and driven by national and provincial standards. Continuous one-minute data is collected 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by FAP and is available to anyone. We invite you to find out more about what substances we monitor and how we monitor.

Note: The Air Quality Health Index is calculated and produced by Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development using Fort Air Partnership generated data.
