CAMA Webinar hosted by Health Canada's National Radon Program
Wednesday, October 4, 2023, 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. EST
Join Health Canada’s National Radon Program on October 4, 2023 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. EST to learn how municipalities can take action on radon.
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that emanates from the ground and can enter and accumulate in buildings. Radon gas is found in every building in Canada at some level. Radon exposure is the leading cause of lung cancer after smoking, and accounts for more than 3000 lung cancer deaths in Canada annually.
Radon risk reduction is easy to address through testing and mitigation. Municipalities can become leaders in advancing radon action through:
• policy development
• education and awareness
• creating databases and maps
• supporting community testing and mitigation
• enforcing radon provisions in Building Codes
This webinar will cover:
• why municipalities should take action
• how to create radon action strategies
• important steps to take to reduce radon-induced lung cancer in communities
This webinar will be provided in English. The presentation is available in both English and French. Response to questions in both official languages will be available during the presentation. Francophone municipalities are invited to contact the National Radon Program at email@example.com to schedule a French presentation.
