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.

Publications from our team and other Canadian radon scientists:

A low radon future for Canada is possible with evidence-based decision-making and interventions made possible by cutting-edge research. The Evict Radon National Study combines citizen science and professional cancer research to build the knowledge needed to reduce radon exposure, and thereby prevent future lung cancers in Canada. Our efforts are designed to encourage as many Canadians as possible to test their home for radon and leverage the resulting information to understand the scale and scope of radon exposure in the modern Canadian built environment.

All of our research strictly adheres to independently approved research ethics board standards and is published following independent, academic peer review, and is released in a free and open-access format available for all.
