Did you know...?

Even modest increases in air pollution can cause small but measurable increases in the use of medication, emergency room visits, hospital admissions and premature death.

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.
