Air Quality Flag Program

The Air Quality Flag Program is a pilot initiative being introduced in BC elementary schools this year. This free program is accessible online and encourages outdoor activity when the air quality is good, and provides school communities with ideas on how to remain active if the air quality is poor. Some people react more to air pollution than others. Children are more at risk because they are often active outside, have less developed lungs and breathe deeper and more often compared to adults. The Air Quality Flag Program informs schools about local air quality through online resources and curriculum-linked material.
