As part of our ongoing concern for the health and safety of our students, staff, volunteers and families visiting our schools, we regularly monitor the EMF ( Electric and Magnetic Fields) that are generated from our in school wi-fi. Wi-Fi standards are governed federally by Health Canada and can be found at Safety Code 6: Health Canada’s Radiofrequency Exposure Guidelines.
All of our testing involves monitoring each of the school’s AP’s when they are turned ON and OFF. Health Canada’s Safety Code 6 establishes 10 W/m2 as the limit for all WiFi equipment. Our testing results have indicated levels significantly lower than this. From the 803 tests that we completed, our highest reading was 0.52.
