The goal of the Canadian Clean Air Alliance is to educate the public about the severe health hazards from residential wood burning pollution. We are Canadians who have come together to fight for the right to breathe  clean fresh air in our homes, yards and neighbourhoods.

 

Even though humanity has burned wood for thousands of years, scientists have only recently discovered just how hazardous wood smoke pollution is to our health.  

We can no longer ignore this deadly yet preventable form of air pollution. Wood smoke pollution is more hazardous to our health than second hand cigarette smoke. The US EPA says, the lifetime cancer risk from wood smoke is estimated to be 12 times greater than from a similar amount of cigarette smoke.

 

Wood smoke pollution is also a major contributor to global warming. The threat to our health and the devastating effects to climate change is REAL, it is now time for all of us to join and work together to end this 

severe form of air pollution.
