Québec - Air Quality Health Index
People with heart and lung conditions are most affected by air pollution.
To find out if you are at risk, consult the health guide, or your physician.
Visit the national AQHI Web site to learn more about the AQHI.
Exposure to air pollution may cause healthy people to experience irritated eyes, increased mucus in the nose or throat, coughing or difficulty breathing, especially during exercise.
The AQHI is an initiative of Environment Canada, Health Canada, the Ministère du Développement durable, de l'Environnement, de la Faune et des Parcs, the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux, the Direction de santé publique de l'Agence de la santé et des services sociaux de Montréal and the City of Montréal.
