Community Notice Regarding Air Quality
We would like to remind members that, due to the current wildfire situation in Ontario, it is important to remain informed regarding air quality and to act accordingly.
Air quality information can obtained via the following resources:

We are also monitoring air quality index daily and will be sharing this information with the community via the M’Chigeeng website, the M’Chigeeng App and the Administration Facebook Page.
In addition, we would like to remind the community to exercise the following safety measures:
- Remain indoors with windows and doors closed if there is smoke in the air. DO NOT run Air conditioning without air filters.
- Use an air purifier in your home if you have one.
- Limit outdoor activities
- Use an N95 mask if you are outdoors and exposed to wildfire smoke for extended periods
