FALL RADON TESTING: Long-term radon test kits are now available.  

Thank you for your interest in testing with the Evict Radon research initiative.  

Evict Radon is a 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.

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.
