Without regulation there is no basis for enforcing actions towards cleaner air. Whether it’s limiting burning on days with poor circulation, or getting people to stop idling their cars, both local and regional governments have several tools they can use to ensure that the air in their communities stays clean.

West Coast Environmental Law (WCEL) published a great Clean Air Bylaws Guide in 2006 – recommended starting point for getting your community on the track towards air quality.

How does your community stack up?

A 2011 inventory of air quality bylaws in BC was recently published by the Ministry of Environment, which lists bylaws in each community.
