Take Action on Radon

Take Action on Radon

Take Action on Radon is a program delivered on behalf of Health Canada with the overall goal of raising awareness of the risks of radon gas exposure and empowering them to test their homes and businesses for radon, and mitigate buildings that have radon levels over the guideline value of 200 Bq/m3.

The immediate goal (Year 1) of this project was to deliver a Collaborative National Radon Awareness Campaign throughout the month of November 2013, profiled as Radon Awareness Month, and in subsequent years so as to achieve the overall goal of reducing the risk of radon exposure for Canadians.

The focus of the Campaign is on homeowners. The objectives are to increase awareness of:

  • the health risks;
  • the nature of radon;
  • the need to test;
  • how to test;
  • where to obtain test kits, and;
  • how to find a radon mitigator.
