Kamloops Air Quality Roundtable
The Kamloops Air Quality Roundtable is a multi-party collaborative initiative formed in June 2015. It is facilitated by the Fraser Basin Council (Kamloops chapter), and TRU has several seats at the table. The purpose of the roundtable is to enable inclusive, multi-party communication, information-sharing, feedback and wider implementation of existing tools, products and initiatives related to air quality that are science-based and that recognize environmental, social, health and economic perspectives.
If you’re interested in sitting on the roundtable or want more information about it, contact Mike Simpson, Senior Regional Manager, Thompson region, Fraser Basin Council at 250-314-9660 or email@example.com.
TRU Sustainability Grant Fund Review Committee
