Air Quality (Outdoor)

Citizens living in Sun Country Health Region can check the air quality in different areas of the province (Regina / South; Saskatoon / Central; or Prince Albert / North) by visiting the Environment Canada Air Quality Health Index at:

http://www.ec.gc.ca/cas-aqhi/default.asp?lang=En&n=DCE017F0-1

When air quality changes, for example with forest fires, people need to see if they are at risk for health impacts. Check out your risk by going to:

People who have heart or lung conditions may experience breathing difficulties when air quality changes and should take precautions. Information about the precautions you should take to minimize the impact on your health for different air quality levels can be found at this Environment Canada site. This site also has information and precautions for the general public:
