Indoor Air Quality

Canadians spend close to 90 percent of their time indoors, making indoor air quality an important health concern.

Poor air quality has been shown to cause and/or irritate a wide array of health effects, such as:

  • allergies
  • asthma
  • lung cancer
  • respiratory infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia
  • ear, nose, and throat irritation and inflammation
  • COPD
  • and many others

Visit Alberta Lung's clean air resource centre for more information and downloadable information about indoor air quality.
