Indoor Air Quality

Measuring and evaluating air quality is an important activity to reduce potential health risks to the people of Saskatchewan.

Public health inspectors ensure safe air quality by responding to complaints about indoor air quality in public buildings and rental units.

Complaints may be related to health effects associated with:

  • Carbon monoxide
  • Mould
  • Nitrogen dioxide
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Formaldehyde

Depending on the type of concern, public health inspectors also provide advice on indoor air quality issues related to private residences.

Public health inspectors also monitor air quality in ice arenas where air quality may be a health concern.

  • Ice resurfacing equipment can produce exhaust gases and combustion products, e.g. carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide.
  • Improperly operated or poorly maintained ice resurfacing equipment and facility ventilation systems may allow exhaust gases to accumulate indoors which may make people sick.

The Air Quality Health Index is a tool developed by Environment Canada to help you understand what the air quality means to your health.


Complaints about air quality, except those related to a workplace environment, may be directed to the Saskatchewan Health Authority.
