Inhale Project

  • Two communities in Hamilton have been selected as pilot project sites for the INHALE Hamilton initiative (Environment Hamilton project). Efforts are well underway to collect neighbourhood air pollution data in the Jamesville / Beasley area. We are also looking for new volunteers to help with data collection in the Sherman and Crown Point Hubs.
  •   
  • Join the INHALE Hamilton team by becoming a Community Air Tracker today! Community Air Trackers are ‘citizen scientists’ who monitor air quality in their neighbourhood with easy-to-use, compact air particulate monitoring equipment. You can strap a monitor to your backpack, bike, baby stroller or walker and take it with you on your trips around the neighbourhood, collecting air quality data as you go!
