Did you know...?

Children are vulnerable to air pollution: they inhale more air per kilogram of body weight than adults and therefore breathe in more pollutants.


The AQHI is an initiative of Environment Canada, Health Canada, the B.C. Ministry of Environment, the B.C. Ministry of Healthy Living and Sport, the B.C. Ministry of Health Services, the Resort Municipality of Whistler and the B.C. Lung Association.
