Did you know...?

The poor and disadvantaged in our society may be more at risk as they often live in neighbourhoods close to major highways and industry.

The AQHI is an initiative of Environment Canada, Health Canada, the Ontario Ministry of Environment, the ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux du Québec, the ministère du Développement durable, de l'Environnement et des Parcs du Québec, Ottawa Public Health and the Direction de la santé publique de l'Outaouais.
