    • Special Air Quality Statement

      Special Air Quality Statement in effect until 7:31 PM PST. Source: Environment Canada


    Stagnant winter weather conditions are creating elevated pollution levels.

    The Ministry of Environment in collaboration with Northern Health has issued an Air Quality Advisory for Valemount and Vanderhoof due to high concentrations of fine particulates that are expected to persist until weather conditions change.

    Persons with chronic underlying medical conditions should postpone strenuous exercise until the advisory is lifted. Staying indoors and in air conditioned spaces helps to reduce fine particulate exposure. Exposure is particularly a concern for infants, the elderly and those who have diabetes, and lung or heart disease.
