Radon Policies for Local Governments

There is a lot that municipal governments and regional districts can do in BC to make progress on radon.  Steps include declaring Radon Action Month, community testing, and new bylaws to protect renters.  

We have prepared a short summary and an in depth legal opinion on municipal powers to address radon. We have also provided guidance to local governments. 

In 2021 and 2022 we worked with the Regional District of Central Okanagan's Air Quality Coordinator to create Reducing Radon in the Central Okanagan, a comprehensive guide for local radon reduction, and workshopped it with local governments.

This project is funded by the Law Foundation of British Columbia.
