Saskatchewan has established a provincial network of 19 continuous air monitoring stations. These stations track emissions from industry, mining, agriculture, forest fires and our vehicles. What those tracking stations show is that air quality across our province is good to excellent. Air pollution levels are normally quite low in Saskatchewan. The major exceptions are during forest fires and pockets of sour gas emissions connected to the energy sector.
Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Climate change is a long-term shift in weather patterns. Find out what contributes to climate change, and what Saskatchewan is doing to reduce emissions and clean up energy generation produced from burning coal.
Air Pollutant Volume
Air pollutant volume tracks the total amounts of major air pollutants released each year in Saskatchewan. Learn about emissions from each industry sector and how Saskatchewan works with other jurisdictions, non-government organizations and stakeholders to minimize impacts on air quality.
Air Pollutant Concentration
Air pollution trends represent the concentrations in a region and overall improvement or degradation over time. Air quality in Saskatchewan is primarily very good and pollution levels are improving for most pollutants.
