Estimates show that approximately 10,000 premature deaths are attributed to fine particulate matter (PM) alone. This exposure is also linked to loss of more than one third of a year of life expectancy. Although efforts to reduce exposure to air pollution have been successful – between 2000-2011 levels lowered by almost 25% in Canada – exposure to air pollutants such as PM remains a burden for chronic disease. Efforts to reduce air pollution are ongoing and an essential consideration in urban planning and policy.
