If a million Canadians worked from home just one day every year, we could eliminate about 250 million kg of emissions and 100 million litres of fuel.

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.
