Saskatchewan Lung Association
The Saskatchewan Lung Association provides education and awareness to Saskatchewanians about radon and the health risks associated with long-term exposure to high concentrations. In addition, the Saskatchewan Lung Association sells Health Canada approved long-term radon test kits, which includes laboratory analysis costs.
Radiation Safety Institute of Canada
The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada was founded as an independent, non-partisan, non-governmental body to promote safety in relation to radiation exposure in the workplace and in homes, schools and the environment. Its founding was a direct, independent response to the human disaster in the Elliot Lake uranium mines, where healthy miners had been exposed to excessive amounts of a common radioactive gas (called radon) in the underground mining environment.
