    The air monitoring stations measure up to 6 common pollutants like: * ground-level ozone * fine particulate matter * nitrogen dioxide * carbon monoxide * sulphur dioxide * total reduced sulphur compounds The Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks continually monitors air quality across Ontario. We use this information to: * inform the public about outdoor ambient air quality through the Air Quality Index (AQI) and Smog Advisory program * assess Ontario's air quality and evaluate long-term trends * identify areas where pollutant levels are exceeded * identify the origins of pollutants * develop air policy * provide quantitative measurements to reduce specific pollution sources * determine the significance of pollutants from long-range transports and their effects * provide air quality researchers with data to link environmental and human health effects to air quality

    Shows areas where the health and prevalence of caribou can be linked to the attributes of the land that supports them. Ontario's Woodland Caribou Recovery Strategy (2008) provides advice and recommendations on the approaches needed for the recovery of Woodland Caribou. The strategy recommends the identification of ranges and local populations to: * maintain existing, self-sustaining, genetically-connected local populations of caribou * ensure security for and (reproductive) connections among currently isolated mainland caribou * re-establish caribou in strategic areas to create self-sustaining local populations and ensure connectivity Instructions for downloading this dataset: * select the link below and scroll down the metadata record page until you find **Transfer Options** in the **Distribution Information** section, * select the link beside the **Data for download** label, * you must provide your name, organization and email address in order to access the dataset This product requires the use of GIS software. *[GIS]: geographic information system

    This historic dataset includes data reported under Ontario’s now revoked Emissions Trading Program regulations (O. Reg. 397/01: Emissions Trading and O. Reg. 194/05: Industry Emissions - Nitrogen Oxides and Sulphur Dioxide). The Emissions Trading Program ended in February 2021, as the program achieved its objectives by meeting its emission reduction obligations and targets. The program set limits for nitrogen oxides (NOX) and sulphur dioxide (SO2) emissions from regulated facilities and allowed for the transfer or trade of emission allowances and credits between facilities, to provide flexibility for compliance. Regulated facilities included Ontario's large electricity generators, and petroleum, iron and steel, pulp and paper, flat glass, cement, carbon black, and base metal smelting facilities.
