Stay informed on outdoor air quality conditions, plan your outdoor activities, and manage exposure to outdoor air pollution. The Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) Canada app informs users of the level of health risk associated with local outdoor air quality. The app provides hourly AQHI readings and daily forecasts for all AQHI communities across Canada.

The app includes the following features:

• User defined push notifications based on the AQHI level and stations you choose.

• Map screen to view spatial distribution of AQHI over a region or the entire country.

• GPS capability to bring you to your nearest station from the map screen.

• Profile view for setting favourite communities.

• Tips for taking personal action to improve air quality.

The AQHI is reported as a number from 1 to 10. The higher the AQHI number, the greater the health risk and need to take precautions. Health messaging provides advice for limiting exposure to air pollution and adjusting outdoor activity levels when air quality is poor.

Needs iPhone X Update

The app needs to be updated for the iPhone X. As it is, it displays large black bars on the top and bottom, making the phone look like an old device and not taking advantage of the screen.

Not correct info

Why is this fractions off so it only goes to 10+? Right now the air quality is registering a 5, but it’s 156. I’d like to see the actual.

What a fantastic app. With all the forest fires and poor air quality it nice to know what area to avoid. A++
