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.

It’s so much more than a test.

By testing with Evict Radon and ordering one of our quality controlled radon devices, you are joining a cohort of Canadians who are helping to put an end to Canada’s worsening radon problem. Each Evict Radon participant fills out a home metric survey, which, at the end of the testing period, is paired with the radon reading of your home. The results* from this survey and the home radon measurement are then shared with our team of Canadian scientists to help solve Canada’s radon problem. 

*No personal data is ever shared. Only the home metric survey, the radon measurement and the first 3 digits of your postal code.
