Canadian environmental sustainability indicators


This first annual report presents environmental indicators for water quality, air quality, and greenhouse gas emissions. The water indicator documents the distribution of water quality at selected sites across Canada. The air indicator reports national and regional trends in ground-level ozone, a key component of smog. The greenhouse gas indicator describes the trend in emissions and the contribution to the trend by energy production, energy consumption and other factors. The indicators are intended to assist those in government responsible for developing policy and measuring performance, while also helping individual Canadians who want to know more about the trends in their environment.
