The objective of the CCIAQB is, ultimately, to improve indoor air quality for all Canadians in every type of building. The CCIAQB has decided that its initial focus should be on buildings where many Canadians spend time outside their home, working, learning, shopping, being entertained, etc. For the most part, these buildings have relatively complex heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems that are operated and managed by knowledgeable persons. The table below gives examples of buildings that are covered using the classification found in the National Building Code of Canada (NBC). Documents produced by the CCIAQB are primarily intended for the use of building operators and facility managers, but the information contained in the guides can be helpful to anyone seeking a general understanding of indoor air quality issues.
