Healthy Indoor Environments Program

BC Lung's Healthy Indoor Environments program is focused on providing education, resources, and policy options for addressing priority indoor air pollutants in British Columbia.

Canadians spend 90% of their day indoors, with about 70% at home and 20% at work or school.  The air we breathe indoor can contain particulates, gases, allergens and fumes that can significantly impact our health in both the short and long term. Knowing the main indoor air pollutants, their sources, and how to reduce them are key to reducing harm to our health.
