Radon: A Cause for Concern for Homeowners?

This project will seek to assess whether Canadians are aware of radon and its health effects. This will add to research previously conducted on the health effects of radon by providing recommendations on next steps for government on building awareness of the issue among industry and consumers. It will identify the type of information and education Canadians need to build awareness, to assess exposure, and to take appropriate remedial steps.

The project will focus entirely on the consumer perspective.

Expected outcome

The outcome will be a report examining the information and education requirements for homeowners whose homes test positive for radon.
