Ministry of Environment: How air quality affects your health

Air Quality Health Index: This public information tool, available through Environment Canada, measures air quality in relation to health risk on a scale of 1 to 10. The higher the number, the greater the health risk associated with air quality. The tool is a way for Canadians, particularly at-risk populations, protect their health by planning the extent of their exposure to the outdoors.

About the Fraser Basin Council

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and throughout BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
