Radon Monitor Lending Programs are helping to educate Canadians and increase their understanding of the actions they can take to reduce their risk.  Libraries, in particular, have recognized this as a great opportunity to add a new resource to their lending library, however other organizations such as community groups, provincial or federal legislatures, municipalities may also be well set up to launch a program.

There are a few things for lending programs to keep in mind:

  • Take Action on Radon has resources to help you with setting up a Radon Monitor Lending program, we can support you with printable materials as well as connect you with an individual to help you walk through the process.

  • Organizations starting lending programs, may also want to start by sharing basic radon information to their community.  Take Action on Radon has some general awareness material that we can email or mail to you for distribution.

  • Health Canada recommends that radon monitor lending programs run from October – March during the heating season to be in-line with Health Canada’s radon testing messaging.
