Clean Air Day Activities - June 3, 2020
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, Clean Air Day activities are on hold until further notice. Please staty tuned for updates. 

Promoting clean air and good health

Clean Air Day takes place on the first Wednesday of June each year and is part of Environment Week celebrations. Each year on Clean Air Day, we raise awareness of environmentally-friendly activities that promote clean air and good health.

Did You Know?

  • People who travel by public transit create 65% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than if they travel by car.
  • One bus on the road is equal to taking approximately 40 cars off the road.
  • Trees add oxygen to our air.  Overall, St. Albert’s tree canopy covers over 10% of the city. 
  • In 2017, the City installed a 301-kilowatt solar panel system on the St. Albert Transit Building. This solar array, the biggest in Alberta, supplies approximately one-third of the building's electricity.
  • St. Albert's air quality monitoring station reports the Air Quality Health Index (AQHI), which links outdoor air quality to health risks. Download the AQHI Canada app to get real-time St. Albert air quality data from your smart phone. 
  • Seven electric buses have been added to St. Albert Transit fleet. With the installation of the solar panels, these buses are operating from the electricity generated by the sun.  

Walk, bike, carpool or ride transit on Clean Air Day and every day!
