The poor air quality has shut down all sporting activity today (June 7) for students in the Halton District School Board (HDSB).

This applies to students that were part of any sporting event that was to take place at both the elementary and secondary school levels in Burlington, Milton, Oakville and Halton Hills.

The HDSB says it is continuing to monitor the air quality health index for Halton and that it could affect activities over the next several days.

Air quality in large parts of Ontario and most of Southern Ontario has been adversely impacted because of the wildfires that continue to rage in Quebec and parts of Northern Ontario.

As for the Halton Catholic District School Board, there are no cancellations of events and all sporting activities will continue today.
