What is the email air quality alert system?

The email air quality alert system is a notification service that provides advanced warning of a Special Air Quality Statement or Smog and Air Health Advisory.

By subscribing to the service, there are three kinds of notifications that you can expect to receive by email.

Both Special Air Quality Statements and Smog and Air Health Advisories are issued jointly by Environment Canada and the Ontario Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks.

Air quality alert notification is provided all year round with the majority of alerts being issued during the May to September period depending on the weather conditions.
