Air Quality Advisory

An air quality advisory is issued when pollutant concentrations approach or exceed predetermined limits, or when degraded-air-quality episodes are expected to continue or worsen.

Advisories are issued in order to:

  • inform about degraded air quality;
  • help people make informed choices about reducing their exposure to elevated concentrations of air pollutants;
  • affect emission reduction actions (such as a limit on industrial emissions and/or wood stove use); and
  • provide vulnerable individuals and the general public with health advice developed by BC health agencies.

For more information on what to do, go to www.gov.bc.ca/BC Air Quality  or Health Link BC.
