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 between Environment Canada, Health Canada, Nova Scotia Environment, and The Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness in partnership with the Lung Association of Nova Scotia and Clean Nova Scotia.
