The national Commuter Challenge is designed and delivered by an Alberta-based non-profit organization Sustainable Alberta Association committed to creating livable communities and to reducing transportation-related emissions. Their mission is to promote and facilitate sustainable mobility through education and engagement. Their main focus is to improve the personal, social and environmental health of people through encouraging them to leave their cars at home and commute by foot, bicycle, bus, train, carpool and telecommunications.
Our partnership with Environment and Climate Change Canada is about promoting the positive impacts that result from people using more sustainable modes of commuter transportation. Along with GHG, calories burned and liters of fuel saves, we also recognize that individuals can influence air quality and this can be observed by visiting the AQHI web site and downloading the app on your mobil phone.
The many air Quality monitoring stations across Canada aggregate and measure air quality to inform and support healthy living for Canadians.

Clean Air Day is a celebration of environmentally-friendly activities that promote clean air and good health across Canada. Historically, the Commuter Challenge has been closely connected to the Clean Air Day. Individuals can reevaluate your commuter habits or renew their commitment to choosing cleaner modes of commuter transportation. Clean Air Day, always celebrated on a Wednesday, is the natural mid-point and highlight of the week-long Commuter Challenge.
