We are challenging municipalities across Canada to take part in the 100 Radon Test Kit Challenge.

The 100 Radon Test Kit Challenge targets municipalities across Canada where radon testing has thus far been limited, but where there is a potential for homes to have elevated radon levels. The program will provide up to 100 test kits to each participating municipality, to be distributed to citizens for free. Each community needs to have a Community Liaison to take on this project in their community and provide local support.

Do you want your community to participate in the 100 Radon Test Kit Challenge?  The program is full for the fall of 2023, but if you are representing a municipality that’s interested in participating, you may Apply for the fall of 2024 here.
