Air Quality

Most people spend the majority of their time indoors. Many potential sources of contaminants in the home environment can result in poor indoor air quality, which, in turn, can affect individuals’ health. For information on the sources and impacts of indoor air pollution and how you can protect yourself and your family, please contact your health authority. You can also review the HealthLink BC Files or look at the other resources and publications in the right-hand navigation bar on this page.

To learn about outdoor air quality in the province, visit the BC Air Quality website. The Air Quality Health Index outlines the current and forecast air quality in your area, and health precautions you should take if the air quality is poor.
