Deputy ministers and senior officials from Environment Canada and the environment departments of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba met in Edmonton on 4 September 1980 to review available information on acid rain and long-range transport of air pollutants (LRTAP) in western Canada. At that time, they concluded that acidic deposition was not a serious problem in the West. With an increase in industrial activity in western Canada and the western United States, the deputy ministers subsequently agreed that continued vigilance against acid rain and LRTAP was indeed warranted. They agreed to establish a Consultative Committee of deputy ministers and a Technical Committee of senior officials from the four western provinces and environment Canada to co-ordinate monitoring, research and other activities on acid rain and LRTAP. This document, the second annual report of the Technical Committee, summarizes monitoring and research activities on acid rain and LRTAP conducted in western Canada during 1982. The activities and projects of each province, the Northwest Territories and Environment Canada are described in separate sections; another section includes projects jointly undertaken by two or more agencies. Section 9 is a first attempt to describe activities undertaken by industry, universities, and research institutes in western Canada.
