Environment and Climate Change Canada has issued an air quality statement for Moose Jaw and the surrounding area.

A cold front moving to the south is expected to bring forest fire smoke from wildfires in the northern prairies. The front is expected to hit tonight into Wednesday along with the band of thick smoke into central and southern Saskatchewan.

People with lung disease, such as asthma, or heart disease, older adults, children, pregnant women and people who work outdoors are at higher risk of experiencing health issues due to the smoke. 

Environment and Climate Change Canada recommends you contact your physician or a health care provider if your breathing becomes uncomfortable or you feel unwell.
