Radon in Manitoba - test your home
Across Canada, 11% of homes have radon gas levels higher than Health Canada standards. In Manitoba, 24% have higher than the acceptable levels. That's one in four houses!
The Canadian Cancer Society urges all Manitobans to test their home for radon.
Radon is easy to test for and can usually be reduced to safe levels with the help of a professional radon mitigator. Everyone should check their home but those who smoke tobacco are at higher risk.
You can find Canadian professional radon mitigators listed on the Canadian National Radon Proficiency Program (C-NRPP) at www.c-nrpp.ca. You can purchase test kits through the Canadian Cancer Society by calling toll-free at 1-888-532-6982 or by visiting this website.
