Update – May 2018
PACHA is in the process of reviewing its strategic plan. This will commence by conducting an environmental scan of the air quality monitoring and improvement implementation efforts over the past decade and resulting impacts of those efforts over time. While it appears that the air quality has improved, progress has been slower than expected. In addition, there are both emerging issues as well as issues not yet fully addressed which need to be dealt with to complete out knowledge and understanding of the relative safety of our outside air quality.
We continue to participate as a member of the PGair Roundtable quarterly “Board” meetings. Since it is a volunteer organisation, it brings the many actors who impact air quality in the City to the table. However, it does not have the authority to enforce the implementation of recommended practices. We see its primary role as a communication tool to bring issues to the table for information and discussion and provide awareness of the status of the Prince George air quality environment to the public.
In our endeavour to seek renewed actions by those residing in the Greater Prince George Area affected by the air quality, PACHA is interested in learning about your opinions, concerns, experiences and suggestions of incremental improvements which can and should be made to improve health outcomes in the community.
