This stuff changes the characteristics of our air, which can make it hard tobreathe and make existing respiratory and cardiac conditions worse.


These people breathe faster, drawing air deeper into their lungs, as a function of doing their job well.

This puts them at a higher risk from poor air quality.


These go through an automatic gas exchange thousands of times per day, about every 3 seconds, inside each of us.


These people are at higher risk of reacting to poor air quality because of increased likelihood of health problems .


These areas are often better suited for exercise because of reduced exposure to automobile exhaust.


Choices we make in our communities such as driving our cars or burning wood to heat our homes, significantly impact this.


Just 10 seconds of this can use more fuel

than turning off the engine and restarting it.


Your workplace might provide these for commuting by public transit or carpooling. If not, ask them to consider it.


This is one of the largest sources

of air pollution in Canada.


If a million Canadians did this just one day every year, it’s estimated about 250 million kg of emissions would be eliminated.


People can use this Index on a daily basis

to help decide if they should drive their vehicle

or choose a different mode of transportation

such as cycling or taking the bus.


Children are more vulnerable to air pollution because they do more of this, especially during summer when pollution levels can be higher.


Young children can be more adversely affected by poor air quality because they do this more rapidly.


Emissions from these can significantly

impact local air quality, visibility

and human health


Children and parents can check this index every day before school and work to help plan their daily outdoor activities.


This gas shields us from the sun in the upper atmosphere,

but poses a risk to human health at ground level


Running your gas powered lawnmower for this amount of time is equal to driving a new car between 320 and 480 kilometres.


When the Air Quality Health Index is in the high range, lowering this

when outside can reduce air pollution impacts on your health.
