NOTICE: Radon testing during Spring & Summer (April to August)  

You are interested in obtaining a radon test kit during Spring or Summer period (April to August). The latest Canadian radon research shows that there is no statistically significant difference between long term 90+ day test outcomes performed at different times of year (seasons). However, health authorities still recommend performing most of this test during colder months. We want you to be aware you have three options:

  1. Perform a 180+ (6 month) test, starting now
  2. Wait until mid-September, and perform a 90+ day (3 month) test
  3. Deploy your test for an entire year

The device is only active once you have opened the plastic bag surrounding it. The most important thing is to accurately record the start and end date of the test, via the registration process. If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected].

Evicting Radon as a source of Canadian lung cancer

Join us for a free public lecture on the dangers of radon gas presented by Dr. Aaron Goodarzi, Canada Research Chair for Radiation Exposure Disease. 

New research finds that Canadians living in Saskatchewan are the second highest radon-exposed population on Earth. 50% of homes in Regina exceed the maximum radon exposure limit. Advocates urge Saskatchewan residents to test their home with scientists and, by doing so, find the solutions we all need to help everyone to ‘evict’ radon from the province.

Dr. Goodarzi is a University professor and is the research lead of Evict Radon, a Canadian non-profit and group of scientists whose goal is to solve Canada’s substantial and worsening radon-gas exposure problem. They are doing this by using interdisciplinary research to actually understand our radon problem and then engineer solutions for the benefit of all Canadians.
