Fonds consists of records created and accumulated by members of Pollution Probe Foundation in the course of their research, advocacy, and lobbying around environmental issues between 1969 and 1981.
The fonds includes minutes of meetings, correspondence, reports, financial statements, advertisements, project and program files. The records focus on transportation and transit, politics, water quality, waste management, recycling, pesticides, and related subjects.
The fonds also contains photographs documenting Pollution Probe activities; slides used in presentations on population growth, recycling, and overpackaging; print and television advertisements that promoted Pollution Probe's activities; and various films, videos, and audio recordings created by or about Pollution Probe on issues such as pollution, waste, resource depletion, urban development, and noise.
Pollution Probe Foundation was established in 1969 in Toronto, Ontario to investigate the issue of pollution. Originally formed as an ad hoc committee of students and faculty at the University of Toronto, it eventually became a independent citizen's lobby and research group.
