Clean Air Day

Celebrated on the first Wednesday of June each year, Clean Air Day is a movement to mobilize and enable Canadians to celebrate and protect the air we breathe.

We’re excited that NB Lung leads the national Clean Air Day campaign.

About Clean Air Day 


Clean Air Day is a movement in order to help mobilize and enable people and organizations to celebrate and protect clean air and ensure their voice is heard. 

Air pollution causes heart and lung disease and results in over 15,300 people in Canada dying each year. From traffic to industry, wildfires to residential wood burning, threats to air quality are everywhere. 

Ways To Get Involved

The Walking School Bus

The Canadian Cancer Society has put together some amazing resources that outline what a WALKING SCHOOL BUS is….. Like a motorized bus, there is a planned route with scheduled stops. The Walking School Bus has many benefits for children and families including better health, and helping to keep the air they breathe a bit cleaner for EVERYONE 

Free Public Transit

Public transit is already the greener choice for your community. Offering free fares on Clean Air Day helps everyone tell that story to a wider audience, and get people on board, literally and symbolically to help protect the air we breathe. 

The Science of Air Quality

These resources have been created to help teach about the science of Air Quality. Along with the sources of pollution, and how we measure its impact, and steps everyone can do to reduce their impact on the air we breathe.

Understanding Air Quality & Resources For Educators

Clean Air Day Events

We want to encourage individuals, community groups, municipalities and businesses to organize events celebrating #cleanaireverywhere 

NB Lung has been helping New Brunswickers breathe easier since 1933.
Thank you for your support!
