Quotes from our clients

  • Oakville has been able to advance initiatives working collaboratively with Council members across the GTA. Considerable achievements come through the exchange of ideas, application of innovative Clean Air Council research, and participation in ‘Communities of Practice’ to build municipal leadership for improved air quality, greenhouse gas emission reductions and enhanced awareness of our regional air quality and climate change issues. Oakville looks forward to our continuing strong and positive relationship to achieve significant accomplishments for our citizen’s health and environment.

  • The Region of Peel has been a member of the GTA Clean Air Council since 2001 and our involvement with the Council has been critical in moving our jurisdiction forward on actions to improve air quality. The group facilitates information sharing between all tiers of government and provides opportunities to adopt initiatives which have proven successful in other municipalities. The Council provides Peel with significant cost savings due to the coordination of clean air initiatives across the GTA.

  • We have a long history of identifying and addressing different social inequities that have an impact on the health of Toronto’s most vulnerable communities. We’re proud to partner with TCAT and excited at the long-term potential of this project to make cycling culture accessible outside of the downtown core.

  • The Clean Air Council helped me get up to speed very quickly and efficiently on the air quality and environmental issues facing municipalities. It also provided a forum for getting to know the municipal staff leaders and learn from best practices and similar challenges for moving ahead. It was wonderful to be able to work as a team and have a support network that helped me move forward with actions a lot easier and faster than going it alone would have allowed me to.

  • The Clean Air Council enables municipal staff working on clean air and environmental issues in the GTA to share best management practices, gain insight into what’s happening in other jurisdictions, and develop tangible methods for municipalities to achieve the goals in the Clean Air Council Declaration.
