Who are we?
Evict Radon is a volunteer-led Canadian non-profit organization dedicated to solving Canada’s large and worsening radon-gas exposure problem, a substantial cause of lung cancer even in non-smokers. Evict Radon embraces research strategies across disciplines to gain the information necessary to:
- Understand what type of property produces a high or low radon environment, and why
- Identify who in society are the most at risk from radon exposure
- Make meaningful changes to policy to engineer high radon out of our future buildings.
Led by Dr. Aaron Goodarzi, the Canada Research Chair for Radiation Exposure Disease, Evict Radon is working towards educating Canadians about the harmful effects of radon gas. By testing your home with one of our non-profit, research-grade radon test kits and enrolling in our university-based research, you are helping Evict Radon aligned researchers from across Canada to understand radon exposure and develop new ways to protect ourselves and loved ones.
Everything we do strictly adheres to national research ethics standards, as well as best practices for controlled studies that will pass academic peer-review and, ultimately, very close scrutiny from the public and experts. Achieving a radon risk-free future for Canada is very possible and, if successful, prevent literally thousands of new, mostly high lethality lung cancers each year.
