Air Canada Rouge flight ROU1878 , an Airbus A319-114, was climbing through 8500 feet ASL when the cabin crew advised the flight crew of an abnormal odour in the cabin. The aircraft levelled at 10 000 feet ASL, advised ATC and proceeded with the QRH procedures. The flight crew did not declare a PAN PAN or a MAYDAY; the aircraft returned to CYYZ for an overweight landing. The landing was uneventful, and after ARFF completed an external inspection, the aircraft taxied to the gate.
Maintenance reported the source of the odor was a contaminated filter element in the Air Cycle Machine #2 and replaced the filter.

The aircraft resumed regular service on 30 January 2024.
