About the Certification Program

Nearly one in four Canadians are affected by asthma and allergies. For these Canadians, being able to find products that help create a healthier home environment is important. 

The asthma & allergy friendly™ Certification Program is administered by Asthma Canada in partnership with the international research organization, Allergy Standards Limited (ASL). It is an independent certification program created to identify, scientifically test and certify consumer products that provide a more suitable environment for people with asthma and allergies.
