dc.description.abstract Utilizing new ALMA-ACA observations of the [N II] 205 &micro;m line in combination with existing [C II] 158 &micro;m observations, we characterize the L<sub>[C II]</sub>/L<sub>[N II]</sub> distribution in highredshift sub-millimetre galaxies. Our measurements are consistent with existing literature of high-redshift L<sub>[C II]</sub>/L<sub>[N II]</sub> . Compared to local (U)LIRGs, our measurements find higher luminosity ratios which indicates a key difference in physical parameters of the interstellar medium. We also present the first stages of a wide-field narrow-band emission line survey using CFHT WIRCam, including details of its initial success. en_CA
