Radon is an invisible, odourless, tasteless radioactive gas found naturally in the environment, and it can be found in every home and school. Exposure to high levels of it in indoor air results in an increased risk of developing lung cancer and the only way to know if a home has levels above the recommended guideline is to test. If levels are high, mitigation measures can be installed for the same amount as a furnace – around $2,500. Learn more about Radon

Recognizing that awareness related to radon has increased significantly over the last five years, Health Canada has contracted Scout Environmental to help identify potential new opportunities to educate Canadians into action. Health Canada has funded several campaigns related to radon and while these campaigns have made significant strides, there continues to be a disconnect between education and action.
