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.

What do I do once I receive my results?

The Canadian guideline established by Health Canada for the maximum exposure limit of radon in your home is 200 Bq/m3. Your report will indicate your radon reading under the RADON RESULT column. We’ve included an example report for you to look at. This report will be emailed to you using the email you registered the device with. 

NOTE: If you did not register the device properly, you will not receive your results from the lab. To ensure you did that correctly, visit this section.  

You want the radon level to be under 200Bq/m3. If your results are under the Health Canada maximum exposure limit, you can breathe easy knowing you and your family are not at risk for radon gas. If your levels are above 200Bq/mthen we highly recommend you contact a mitigation professional to lower your risk of radon gas exposure. You can find more information about mitigation here.

Do I need to retest later on? 

Health Canada recommends you retest for radon about every 5 years. However, unless you perform any major home renovation or anything else to change the air dynamics of the home, your radon level should stay the same.
