Did you know...?

Canadian motorists idle their vehicles about 5-10 minutes/day. If we stop idling, our air will be cleaner and we'll all breathe easier.


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.
