Radon Gas: The Call for Provincial Action

We need concrete action to address radon in our homes, workplaces, and schools. In this report, we recommend specific steps that, when taken together, can make up a bold plan.

Many different laws and regulations cover the indoor environment, from Building Codes to occupational health and safety regulation to residential tenancies law and more. Addressing radon requires a proactive and integrated approach. Radon Action Plans are a standard part of environmental and health governance in European countries and the United Kingdom and recommended by Health Canada.
