Radon Awareness PSA with Mike Holmes Jr

Radon testing season is in full swing. Health Canada recommends long-term testing (90-days) in the fall-winter months of the year.

If you have not tested your workplace or home for radon there is still time to order your test. Testing is as easy as 1-2-3.

To help promote radon awareness and prevent radon induces lung cancers from occurring the Institute had supported the production of Public Service Announcement with Mike Holmes Jr.
