Quick Facts

Did you know?

 

Radon is a radioactive gas that forms naturally from the breakdown of uranium in soil. It is invisible and odorless.

It can be found in almost all homes in Canada; however, radon concentrations vary from province to province and from house to house as many factors affect the final indoor levels.

Soil characteristics, construction type, foundation condition, and the use of exhaust fans, appliances and windows that affect the pressure difference between the soil and the house are the most critical factors.

Q&A

  • Should I be concerned?

Radon can accumulate to dangerous levels in enclosed spaces that are in contact with soil, such as homes, and can become a risk to human health.

According to Health Canada, long-term radon gas exposure is linked to 16% of the lung cancer deaths in Canada (3000+ people/year) and is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers*.


 

  • how can I tell if radon gas is a problem where I live?

It is impossible to predict radon levels in a home; therefore, the only way to know for sure is via testing. Radon test kits can be purchased online at takeactiononradon.ca or be found at many hardware and building supply stores across Canada.

If the measured radon concentrations exceed the Canadian guideline level of 200 Bq/m3, Health Canada strongly recommends that homeowners take action to reduce the levels*
