Did you know...?

Pollutants are absorbed into your bloodstream as you breathe, traveling throughout your body and starting a chemical chain reaction that can affect your heart and other organs.


The AQHI is an initiative of Environment Canada, Health Canada, the B.C. Ministry of Environment, the B.C. Ministry of Healthy Living and Sport, the B.C. Ministry of Health Services, the B.C.
