Air pollution comprised of particulate matter 10&#956;m (PM10), particulate matter 2.5&#956;m (PM2.5), ground level ozone (O3) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) has documented impacts on public health, which led governments to establish standards and regulate the emission of these airborne contaminants. In Northern British Columbia where many communities experience periods of poor air quality thorough research on resulting health impacts has not been conducted. This project sought to examine relationships between poor air quality conditions and emergency room visits in Prince George, BC by using the limited data that could be accessed due to privacy concerns. No statistically significant relationships were found individually or when considered together. However, in follow-up stakeholder interviews, respondents confirmed poor air quality links to public health issues exist and need attention. Their comments and suggestions provided a basis for recommendations to support improving air quality conditions in the Prince George airshed.
