This study presents an analysis of atmospheric ammonia (NH₃) concentration from four different sites located in the Portneuf municipality and Quebec City over 2010–2013 years. The determination of NH₃ concentration was performed using passive samplers. Seasonal Mann-Kendall test at 5% significance level was used to analyse the trend in each of the sites. Results showed slight increases and decreases in NH₃ concentration, but the trend was not significant (α = 0.05) from 2010 to 2013 in all the evaluated sites. The annual average concentration of the evaluated sites fluctuated from 0.35 to 17.51 μg/m³. Thus, due to that the annual average concentration of NH₃ in sites 1 to 3 was higher than 1 μg/m³, which is considered as the critical value for protecting of sensible vegetation close to emission source of NH₃. It is suggested to extend the measurements for a longer period and increase the number of sites in order to follow the trends of atmospheric NH₃ concentration at local and regional scale and have information about the NH₃ concentration trend in Quebec.
