Health Canada’s Environmental Health Program provides information about different health risks Canadians may be exposed to everyday. The Healthy Homes webpage can be found here https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/campaigns/healthy-home.html. It goes over different tips to keeping your environment safe.
Radon is an invisible, odourless, and tasteless radioactive gas. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in Canada. Health Canada encourages all Canadians to test their homes for radon using a long term radon test kit. More information on radon can be found here canada.ca/radon.
