Radon concentrations differ from house to house and region to region, but every region in Canada has some homes with high levels.
Based on Health Canada’s 2012 Cross-Canada Survey of Radon Concentrations in Homes, 16% of homes in Saskatchewan measured above the radon guideline of 200 becquerels per cubic metre (200 Bq/m3). However, in certain regions up to 26% of homes were above the guideline level.
Subsequent testing in communities has found regions with over 60% of homes testing above the guideline level.
Remember: no matter what percentage of homes in a region test above the guideline level, it’s impossible to know what the radon level will be in any given home until it is tested. Every home needs to test!
