Veuillez noter :
This course is held online over 3 days on the following schedule (All times in Eastern Time Zone):

9:30 am to 5:30 pm Eastern Time

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand federal and provincial regulations and programs that are drivers of air emissions management and control
  • Determine the best methods for emissions calculation and reporting
  • Understand how air dispersion modelling and monitoring are used to assess effects on ambient air quality
  • Apply best practices, pollution prevention, and control techniques to address air pollutants, fugitive dust, or odours
  • Evaluate the effectiveness and select the most suitable emission mitigation approach for your application.

The industry continues to face increasingly stringent requirements to reduce air emissions to meet current regulations and the increasing pressure coming from enhanced public awareness.

What will be the new requirements and what should we be doing now is the focus of the conference, which brings together industry, environmental consultants, and regulators to envision the upcoming requirements for the different industries, the available technologies and their best use with the objective of increasing industry’s preparedness to face the impending changes. By taking part in this course, you will enhance your understanding of the potential regulatory compliance requirements for emissions assessment and reporting, as well as the implementation of current emission reduction requirements.

By participating in this course, you will enhance your understanding of the potential regulatory compliance requirements to implement emission reductions.

Final Discussion and Closure


Linda Lattner , M.Eng., P.Eng.

Linda Lattner is a licensed professional engineer and is the technical lead for the Air Quality Practice in Ontario. She has over twenty years of experience in air quality assessment and compliance management.

Her primary responsibilities include air quality compliance management, emission inventory development, greenhouse gas quantification and mitigation studies using GHG frameworks and protocols of Canadian and other global agencies, air dispersion modelling, developing and overseeing ambient air monitoring programs, annual environmental reporting, and leading the air quality technical component of Environmental Assessments and permitting assessments.

With experience that includes notable work for gold and iron ore mining clients, power projects, municipal landfills, and industrial facilities. Linda has provided air quality and fugitive dust management support for mining projects; the cleanup of the radioactive waste repository in Port Granby; Toronto Transit Commission’s Leslie Barns site remediation and facility construction; the remediation of the former gold mine site in Deloro, Ontario; Waterfront Toronto’s Lakefilling Project; and for Metrolinx projects in southern Ontario.

Mrs. Lattner has worked with Environment and Climate Change Canada, where she reviewed the GHG reduction potential for major projects subject to federal or provincial environmental assessment. She has also worked for the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment as co-author of a study on the Adequacy of Ambient Air Quality Monitoring in Canada. She has developed guidance materials for the Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change to support the provincial odour policy and led a training workshop for Ministry operations staff.
