RADON TESTING MAY - AUGUST?: 6 MONTH RADON TEST ENCOURAGED  

Thank you for your interest in testing with Evict Radon

Evict Radon is a Canadian non-profit organization dedicated to solving Canada’s significant and worsening radon-gas exposure problem. Radon is a substantial cause of lung cancer even in non-smokers. By testing your home with one of our non-profit, research-grade radon test kits and enrolling in our national, public university-based research study, you are helping Evict Radon-aligned researchers from across Canada to understand radon exposure and develop new ways to protect ourselves and loved ones.

Common practice states that winter is the optimal time to radon test. However, as we collect more data, we have determined little difference between winter and spring radon testing. We do, however, encourage our participants to test over seasonal change. At this time, the best and most accurate radon readings obtained during the spring and summer months are those that are longer than 6 months. 

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:

  1. Understand what type of property produces a high or low radon environment, and why
  2. Identify who in society are the most at risk from radon exposure
  3. 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.

“The results from your simple 90+ day test are then taken forward by researchers to understand how our environment influences our radon exposure.”

Help Canadian Researchers Defeat Radon

Evict Radon is an organization and national study founded by Canadian scientists using an interdisciplinary approach to understand and prevent Canadian radon exposure.

By testing your home with one of our Evict Radon test kits, you’re automatically enrolled in our research study. Each participant is helping researchers across Canada understand radon exposure and develop new ways to protect ourselves and loved ones.
