The UV Index: En4-298/2017E-PDF

"Environment and Climate Change Canada developed the UV Index to inform Canadians about the strength of the sun’s UV (ultraviolet) rays. UV rays can cause sunburns, eye cataracts, skin aging and skin cancer. The higher the UV Index number, the stronger the sun’s rays, and the greater the need to take precautions. The table below outlines the sun protection actions recommended at different levels of the UV Index."
