The weather agency said smoke from forest fires will move into western parts of province on Wednesday afternoon, and then spread elsewhere.
“The smoke will spread into Cape Breton by early Thursday morning, and will dissipate Thursday evening,” the statement reads. “Until that time, smoke from the plume may descend to the ground and cause a local reduction in air quality.”
Parts of New Brunswick also remain under an air quality statement from the smoke, one day after the entire province was put under the order by Environment Canada.
Hundreds of forest fires are currently burning in Canada, many of which are in B.C., Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Ontario.
