Introduction to the Canadian Air Quality Management System
May 6, 2019 /
Course Code: 0501-WEB19
After Participating in this course, you will be able to:
- Review of the status of the air quality management system
- Understanding of model results and uncertainty
- Use of dispersion modelling to optimise monitoring protocols
The AQMS is a comprehensive approach for reducing air pollution in Canada and is the product of an unprecedented collaboration by the federal, provincial and territorial governments and stakeholders. This system is a paradigm shift in the way air quality is assessed across the country and is a hybrid of standards, limits and air quality management zones. For those not directly involved in the process the impact of this program may be difficult to assess.
This practical webinar will examine issues around the AQMS and its proposed implementation at the federal and provincial level.

With more than 40 years of experience in air quality management, his expertise includes emissions assessment, air monitoring, dispersion modelling, and climate change mitigation/adaptation. Dr. Lamming has worked with municipal, industrial, and resource sector clients across Canada and internationally to assess climate impacts, determine emissions, prepare and execute sampling programs, conduct transport and dispersion modelling, assess community impact, develop abatement and monitoring strategies, and prepare permit documentation. He has also been involved in air quality assessment and management studies (including greenhouse gases) as part of the federal and provincial environmental assessment process in the areas of oil & gas, mining, thermal power, major industry projects and forest products. He is a Director of the AWMA Ontario Section, a member of ISO technical committees, and continues to keep abreast of the latest trends in air quality management and control.
