© Environment Canada, 2008 The Environment Canada building at 4905 Dufferin Street in Toronto, Ontario has served as a focal point for meteorology and atmospheric science in Canada for more than 35 years.It currently houses staff from several areas of Environment Canada including the Science and Technology Branch, Meteorological Service Branch and the Canadian Wildlife Service.These programs result in scientific input about EC priority issues - including smog, acid deposition, climate change, and hazardous air pollutants/persistent organic pollutants.The facility’s work supports various Government of Canada priority programs including the Clean Air Regulatory Agenda and the Chemicals Management Plan, as well as national and international activities, such as: Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada’s Northern Contaminants Program; the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement; the Canada-U. Air Quality Agreement; the United Nations Environment Programme; the Arctic Council’s Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program; the Canada-Alberta Joint Oil Sands Monitoring Program; and the World Meteorological Organization’s Global Atmosphere Watch Program.The site also serves as a platform for measurements of acid deposition, air quality, tropospheric ozone, greenhouse gases, and aerosols.Highlights of the Centre include: © Environment Canada, 2008 The King City weather radar station was formed in 1984.CCIW research and monitoring activities support EC’s obligations under the Canada Water Act, the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, and Fisheries Act through participation in government science programs including the Great Lakes Action Plan, the Chemicals Management Plan, the Clean Air Regulatory Agenda, the Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators program, the Northern Contaminants Program and the Joint Canada-Alberta Implementation Plan for Oil Sands Monitoring.© Environment Canada, 2008 The Centre for Atmospheric Research Experiments (CARE) is a regionally representative site located in Egbert, Ontario.
Its unique and specific capacities include: The Borden Forest Research Station was established in 1984 to conduct research on biosphere-atmosphere interactions.
Through systematic measurements of physical, chemical and biological conditions, temporal changes and emerging issues can be tracked and the results of remedial measures and regulatory decisions reported.
EC’s National Laboratory for Environmental Testing delivers a broad range of specialized and ISO 17025 accredited chemical analysis with a specialization in trace metals and ultra-trace organics.
The C-band Doppler radar, a central feature of the site, was modernized in 2004 to include dual polarization technology.
It is used to provide data for weather forecasting, climate prediction research and satellite applications.
