Wireless: Are all Canadians protected?

Canadians are relying on wireless devices more and more. As a result, more people may be asking questions about exposure to radiofrequency (RF) fields.

What we know

Canadian safety guidelines for exposure to RF fields specifically include protection limits for the general public. These guidelines recognize that public exposure can be unavoidable. Because of this, an additional safety factor is included in these limits to provide for all possible conditions. General public exposure limits protect all Canadians including pregnant women, the aged, children and the chronically ill.

What if I'm still concerned?

If you are still concerned about RF exposure to yourself, your children or others, you might want to consider some of the suggestions presented in the information sheet entitled Wireless: Can I reduce my exposure to radiofrequency fields?, which outlines some ways of reducing exposure to RF fields.
