Pilot project - Air Quality Health Index in Québec
The Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) is a new information tool for monitoring air quality and the health risks of poor quality air.
The Air Quality Health Index displays a
level based on the
level in a region or city:
The higher the rating on the scale, the more polluted the air is and the greater the health risk. The Air Quality Health Index is calculated every hour where available.
This tool helps vulnerable people protect their health from the short term effects of air pollution.
The Air Quality Health Index is currently available for residents of the Island of Montréal, Gatineau-Ottawa, and Québec City metropolitan areas.
