Latest air zone reports

Air zone reports are prepared each year by the B.C. government to summarize how air quality levels in broad reporting areas called 'air zones' compare to the Canadian Ambient Air Quality Standards (CAAQS) over a three-year reporting period.

The reports also describe the 'management levels' assigned to each air zone, based on air quality levels after trans-boundary or exceptional events, like wildfires (those events that communities have little control over) have been removed. Management levels are used to help determine the need to maintain or improve air quality. Some of these actions are summarized in the report titled, Air Zone Management Response for British Columbia.
