Air Quality Safety

 Canada’s Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) was developed to support individuals to make decisions to protect their health, with the primary purpose of providing information on the state of air quality at a specific location. Associated health messages suggest the types of actions that individuals should consider when determining what precautions to take during a poor air quality event.

Please take a few moments and read through the following material and identify the air quality measurements in your area for your next great adventure outdoors. 

Scouts Canada will guide you through various resources to educate you on what the numbers represent and how to make informed decisions in your region.  Have fun, stay safe!
