An air quality advisory has been issued for Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley Regional District due to high concentrations of fine particulate matter in the air as a result of wildfires in the western United States.

The current Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) for the eastern Fraser Valley is 10+ (Very High Health Risk) and this level is forecast to continue tomorrow, Monday, September 14. It is advised that those who are considered at-risk, including children, avoid outdoor physical exertion.

Given these circumstances, per Chilliwack FC’s Air Quality Policy, all soccer practices scheduled for Monday, September 14 are cancelled.

Air quality conditions are being monitored on an ongoing basis to protect the health of our players and coaches and ensure a safe return to the field when possible. Updates will be provided each day to confirm the following day’s programming.
