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, Nova Scotia Environment, and The Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness in partnership with the Lung Association of Nova Scotia and Clean Nova Scotia.
