Radon in Real Estate

The BC Lung Association is conducting research to learn what real estate professionals know about radon, what they are doing, and how BC could learn from best practices around the world. 

Many real estate associations and councils across North America have taken special efforts to ensure people learn about radon when they are buying and selling their homes. A cancer-causing radioactive gas produced by the natural decay of uranium in rocks and soils, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers, killing approximately 3,200 people a year in Canada. Radon can become trapped and accumulate in homes and buildings unless systems are installed to prevent it.

Interested in a workshop or a webinar? We have completed our webinar and workshop series for this year. We will be issuing a legal opinion, comparison with best practices around the world, and a summary report soon. We look forward to providing more workshops and webinars to realtors in the future. 

If you would like to share your opinions or concerns about radon, please email or call Dr. Noah Quastel at nquastel@bc.lung.ca or 778-709-4496.
