Digital Projects

Pollution Reporter App: The Pollution Reporter Mobile App is focused on Ontario’s Chemical valley, where some 40% of Canada’s petrochemicals are processed. Download the latest version in the Apple Store or Google Play. The App focuses on the Imperial Oil Refinery of Sarnia, one of the oldest operating refineries in the world, which is on the traditional Anishinaabek territory, and particularly the land of Aamjiwnaang First Nation.  This App is created by the Environmental Data Justice Lab.

The Land and the Refinery Website: This collaborate project is done with Vanessa Gray, Kristen Bos, and Reena Shaadan and the TRU’s Environmental Data Justice Lab. It is an Indigenous-led study of one of the world’s oldest refineries. This project is done in service to the Aamjiwnaang community, on whose land this refinery is located. It may also be of interest to educators, the general public and other land protectors.
