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

Thank you for your interest in testing with the Evict Radon National Study

The Evict Radon National Study is a national research study involving researchers and scientific partners from across Canada who are 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 our at-cost, research-grade radon test kits and enrolling in our national, public university-based research study, you are helping researchers from across Canada to understand radon exposure and develop new ways to protect ourselves and loved ones.

Common practice stated 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 is involved:

At this time, the Evict Radon national study involves university based researchers from across Canada.

The evict radon national study is supported by peer-reviewed competitive grants from multiple Canadian agencies. Our team distributes radon tests kits at cost and does not take a profit form any kits sold.

Our research and outreach initiatives are supported by key funders across Canada. It is with their support that we are able to continue our mission to ‘evict’ radon from Canadian homes.
