CIPHI Ontario Seminar Series: Reducing Radon Ingress in Canadian Homes
In 2007, the Canadian radon guideline was reduced from 800 to 200 Bq/m3 and the National Radon Program (NRP) was rolled out by Health Canada.
The NRP has conducted a considerable amount of research to characterize the scope of indoor radon in Canada, other types of radon research, and public education and outreach regarding the health effects of long-term radon exposure. In collaboration with National Research Council (NRC) Construction Research Centre, further research is being conducted to gain knowledge on reducing radon ingress in new construction and mitigating radon in existing construction. This webinar presentation will inform attendees on some of the work that has been done over the past 12 years by Health Canada’s NRP and the radon building science work conducted at National Research Council.
