Did you know...?

You can plant trees to fight air pollution: their leaves trap airborne particles, which are then washed away by the rain.

The AQHI is an initiative of Environment Canada, Health Canada, the Ontario Ministry of Environment, the ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux du Québec, the ministère du Développement durable, de l'Environnement et des Parcs du Québec, Ottawa Public Health and the Direction de la santé publique de l'Outaouais.
