Radon is a known cancer risk. It is a radioactive soil gas that can build up to harmful levels in indoor air.

The Canadian Partnership for Children’s Health an Environment (CPCHE) is the newly appointed lead organization for Healthy Schools Day in Canada, which this year is April 3, 2018. For Healthy Schools Day 2018, CPCHE is working with one of its longstanding partners, the Canadian Child Care Federation (CCCF), and many others to bring awareness to radon—a known cancer risk that can be present in schools and child care environments.
