Air Quality Health Index overview

The Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) is a public information tool that helps Canadians protect their health on a daily basis from the negative effects of air pollution. This tool has been developed by Health Canada and Environment and Climate Change Canada, in collaboration with the provinces and key health and environment stakeholders.

Choose from the links below to learn more about the AQHI, to get your local AQHI update, or to find out if you are "at risk" from air pollution.

The AQHI is available for selected communities. More locations will be implemented across Canada. Visit this site often for updates on the new locations.
