Air Quality Health Index
Source: Environment Canada, 2017
The Air Quality Health Index is a tool designed to communicate the health risk for students vulnerable to the effects of air pollution (students with diabetes, heart and lung disease) as well as for the general student body. It forecasts local air quality for the current day and the next day. It is designed to assist in health-related decisions. The index does not measure the effects of odour, pollen, dust, heat, or humidity on health.
