When wildfires burn in the areas surrounding Metro Vancouver, the air quality decreases significantly.

Due to the increase in smoke particulate from these wildfires, the B.C. Ministry of Environment, Metro Vancouver and Vancouver Coastal Health may issue an Air Quality Advisory for Metro Vancouver, the Sea-t0-Sky corridor (Howe sound through Squamish, and Whistler to Pemberton) and the Fraser Valley.

We have created this information advisory in hopes that it will give workers and employers some insight on how to deal with working outdoors during the wildfires burning around British Columbia.
