    Description:

    This annual report presents environmental indicators for water quality, air quality, and greenhouse gas emissions. The water quality indicator documents the distribution of water quality at selected sites across Canada. The air quality indicator reports national and regional trends in ground-level ozone, a key component of smog, and fine particulate matter (PM2.5). The greenhouse gas indicator describes the trend in emissions and the contribution to the trend by energy production, energy consumption and other factors. The socio-economic context provides links to economic performance and social progress. The indicators are intended to assist those in government responsible for developing policy and measuring performance, while also helping individual Canadians who want to know more about the trends in their environment.

    The indicator reports from 2005 to 2007 can be found below. All later indicator reports can be found on Environment Canada's site: www.ec.gc.ca/indicateurs-indicators/.
