Radon

Take Action on Radon - SK

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer and Saskatchewan is a hot spot! Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the natural break down of uranium. All homes have some level of radon.  The question is how much. You can’t see, taste, or smell radon. The only way to know how much radon is in your home is to test for it.

We recommend that you test your home for radon, an invisible gas that can cause lung cancer. Radon test kits are available from the Lung Association of Saskatchewan for a cost of $50. The cost also includes the analysis from the Saskatchewan Research Council. These kits are easy to use and your results will be sent to you afterwards. If your home has high radon levels, you can repair it to block the radon.
