According to Environment Canada, smoke in the area is coming from several forest fires in Alberta and British Columbia. 

The majority of the smoke in Fort Saskatchewan is coming from our neighbouring province.

Danielle Desjardins, a meteorologist with Environment Canada, says the smoke may not be around much longer.

"We do have this change in the weather patterns, so it's going to become a little bit more unstable, which should ventilate some of that haze in the next coming days."

There are over 50 forest fires active in Alberta, with only one deemed out of control. Most of these fires are in the far northeast end of the province.
