Nova Scotia
Radon Reduction Grant Program

Providing Equitable Access to Radon Testing & Mitigation 

Radon gas is the second-leading cause of lung cancer. It is an odorless, tasteless, and colorless gas that can seep into homes undetected. The only way to know if your home has dangerous levels is to test for it. There are no radon-free homes.

Why testing is important: Long-term exposure to high levels of radon gas (above 200 Bq/m3) is the second leading cause of lung cancer in Canada.


The Radon Reduction Grant Program is intended to assist low- income households who otherwise might not be able to afford to test for the presence of radon gas and/or remediate their home, if necessary.

This program will provide free radon test kits and provide financial support to low-income Nova Scotia households to remediate their home from high levels of radon gas (up to $2,500).
