Did you know...?

Every day, some 20,000 litres of air pass through our lungs, enough to blow up 600 beach balls.

The AQHI is an initiative between Environment Canada, Health Canada, The Ontario Ministry of the Environment, The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, The Clean Air Partnership and York Region's Community and Health Services Department.
