Ontario students deserve better.
Safety should be prioritized, not politicized.
We are parents, education workers, front-line workers, lawyers, engineers and doctors demanding the Ontario government provide students and education workers with safe, stable, in-person learning spaces.
Indoor air quality standards, transparency, public education, and expert-informed policy are critical to keep schools open and communities healthy.
We are fighting for every student who deserves a safe education and every education worker who deserves a healthy workplace. This should not be controversial. Ontario deserves better.
The government has not stepped in to make any improvements to schools; in fact – they did the very opposite. In our particular school, we did not see any evidence of additional air purifiers being provided or used despite hearing constant chatter about the alleged ‘improved ventilation'.
This is absolute hell, and no one seems to care. There’s nothing my family can do to keep ourselves safe anymore, except remove ourselves from society as much as possible.
September update - the clean air movement is growing
We hope that everyone is having a good start to the school year so far.
We’re seeing increased attention and public interest in improving indoor air quality in schools and on school buses lately, and it’s got us pretty excited. We wanted to share with you what we’ve been up to lately and let you know how you can help advance our cause. We know this can be a stressful time of year (we feel it too). We have added more tools on our website to help you take control of the situation and feel hopeful—as we do—that change is on the horizon.
