    8th Annual CARST Radon Conference 2019



    The annual CARST Conference is known for its positive upbeat atmosphere, great presentations and excellent opportunities for learning, networking and connecting with vendors.  And of course for the Radon Olympics, which return this year for their third appearance!

    The radon industry in Canada is growing at a tremendous rate, with radon awareness efforts engaging new stakeholders across the country and continued research unique to our Canadian landscape.  Join us under the wide expanse of the prairie sky as we discover what's on the horizon for radon.
