Air Quality Links:

Ontario Air Quality Index
The Air Quality Index (AQI) is an indicator of outdoor air quality in Ontario. The lower the AQI, the better the air quality. Using a network of air monitoring stations, 40 state-of-the-art AQI monitoring stations, the Ministry of the Environment takes real-time air quality data from the monitoring sites and produces AQI reading for each location. The ministry AQI readings are reported to the public and news media at set intervals each day. The data is also used to issue smog watches and advisories.
