Health impacts of wildfire smoke in Canada

Workplace air quality guidance available

Several provinces and territories are already enduring a severe wildfire season. These wildfires have prompted special air quality statements for much of the province of Ontario.

The Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training and Skills Development: Fair, Safe and Healthy Workplaces Division, has developed a Q&A document to address workplace air quality concerns and provide information on the mitigation of risk to workers.

NOTE: The information provided in this document is intended for general workplaces which may be encountering poor air quality due to wildfire smoke or other causes; not firefighters or other workers who regularly work close to active fires.
