Government Grant Assistance with Mitigation Costs

Lastly, we want to remind you of the details of the Radon Mitigation Grant.  The Canadian Lung Association has a radon mitigation grant of $1500 towards the cost of a radon mitigation system.  This is intended to help homeowners who can't afford radon mitigation.  In order to qualify for this grant, a homeowner must provide a radon report of 91 days duration or longer using an approved device (such as an Alpha track detector - a test using a consumer-grade electronic radon monitor will not qualify ).  Homeowners must apply with a quote from a certified C-NRPP professional prior to getting any work done ,and they must show proof of qualification which includes proof of income below the criteria or lung cancer diagnosis.  I've attached a sheet of easy to print and cut information about the grant.  You can find more information online here:   (the application link is on the red bar).


Requirements for application

- a Radon measuremetn of 91 days or longer using a C-NRPP approved device

-apply with a quote from a C-NRPP professional BEFORE starting the mitigation work 

-Proof of eligibility including proof of income or lung cancer diagnosos




The Canadian Lung Cancer Association has recently launched a new grant program to help people across Canada afford radon mitigation services.

The Lungs Matter Grant Program  aims to provide financial support to individuals who have been diagnosed with Lung Cancer and individuals considered a low-moderate income housolds with priority given to the low-income houshold.

Radon Potential and Indoor Environmental Issue

Alder CReek Inspections and Consulting, serving areas in South Westerm Ontario including Waterloo Region, Cambridge, Guelph, Stratford, Goderich, Woodstock, etc.

Rdon potential in the Waterloo Region and Southwestern Ontario as a real issue. Radon requires a particular test to be completed to evaluate the amount of Radon in the home or place of work.Acording to Health Canada Southwestern Ontario is in the high catagory for Radon in Canada.

The Health Canada map puts Waterloo Region directly in the high content, zone 1 area. Indoor air quality is a very serious problem with Canadians spending as much as 90% of their time indoors. Radon is the second largest cause of Lung Cancer next to cigarette smoke. Radon kills approximatley 3200 Canadians per year. Radon content in building has nothing to do with the construction of the home or the materials used for construction. Radon is from the soils we live on. With homes being so air tight the Radon or air quality issues do not get diluted as well with outside air anymore. 

The graph show the EPA statistics on deaths related to Radon. 

The Government is working on a bill that will require all commercial buildings to be tested for Radon content. This will be for all buildings from restaurants to office towers. All will be required to be tested and mitigated if nessessary. 

Alder Creek is a member of the association C-ARTS who is the body representing the Radon awareness movement. 

Alder Creek also in its arsinal deals with poor indoor air quality due to contamints in the air we breath. Sick building syndrome is also an issue Alder Creek deals with for home owners and office environments. We have reduced sick days for clients down to as low as possible. When installing these systems people in general feel better with more energy and focus on their task at hand.

Please feel free to contact Alder Creek Inspections and Consulting for a consultation.
