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 Waterloo Region, Kitchener, Cambridge, Guelph, Stratford, Woodstock, Goderich and South Western Ontario

According to the building code changes all new construction will require and Radon Rough In System installed below the concrete basement floor. This system will have to be checked for air flow communication.

Alder Creek Inspection and Consulting will install ducting under the concrete slab before the floors are poured. Another way would be to install a heavy plastic barrier to seal off from between the sub soils and the living space of the home. This alos will have to be read for communication points under the structure. This excersize has a great effect on the indoor air quality of the home. The test are performed in areas where the people or pest inhabit areas of the home or building fro more than 4 hours at a time. 


Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer next to cigarette smoking. The threshold limit for Radon in Canada is 200 Bqm/3. In europe the limit is 100 Bqm/3 and in USA the limit is 150 Bqm/3.

When completing Radon testing one thing to remember is that with the increase of every 100 Bqm/3 the chances of contracting lung Cancer goes up by 16%. 

Every home will have some radon in the indoor air of the home. The question will allways remain that if you do not test for Radon you will never know the amount of Radon and if you have a problem with the quantity of Radon.

Testing for Rdon is crtical.
