The goal of the Canadian Committee on Indoor Air Quality and Buildings is to improve indoor air quality in buildings and, ultimately, the health of occupants, by providing a national forum and clearinghouse for ‘best-of-knowledge’ information on the design and operations of buildings as they affect indoor air quality.

Its mandate is to:

  • solicit and review relevant information;
  • identify gaps and issues;
  • provide discussion forum;
  • recommend studies;
  • develop “best-of-knowledge” positions and best practices;
  • disseminate knowledge;
  • promote adoption of uniform requirements, best practices and guidelines for the design and operation of buildings; and
  • provide guidance for evaluation of solutions and technologies.
