Raising Awareness of Air Quality
– Strathcona County
Strathcona County is taking significant steps to raise awareness about air quality and its impact on the community’s well-being. Through their informative website, the county provides valuable resources and information to help residents understand the importance of monitoring and maintaining clean air. The website highlights the Air Quality Health Index (AQHI), a useful tool that is used to indicate the level of relative health risk associated with local air quality. As an innovative addition, the county has incorporated an AQHI widget on their website, allowing users to easily access real-time air quality information. This widget serves as a visual reminder for individuals to stay informed about air quality conditions and make informed decisions to protect their health.

Edmonton Transit Services is being recognized for its implementation of the Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) across all LRT (Light Rail Transit) stations. By making the AQHI available on the information screens at every station, the city has taken a proactive approach to raise awareness about air quality and its impact on public health. This initiative allows commuters to easily access real-time air quality information and make informed decisions about their well-being. It highlights the importance of incorporating innovative solutions to address air quality concerns.
Contributing Toward Improving Community Air Quality
– Prince Rupert Community League
The Prince Rupert Community League is being recognized for their efforts to improve air quality in raising awareness and community concerns around a nearby development that would otherwise create future air quality challenges. By actively engaging residents and stakeholders, the league effectively highlighted the importance of clean air and its impact on the well-being of the community. Through their persistent advocacy, they successfully drew attention to potential air quality issues that could arise from the development. Their efforts not only created awareness but also fostered collaboration with local authorities and organizations.
