Helping Canadians Reduce Radon Risk

April 27- 29, 2021 - ONLINE

The CARST conference always promises to be full of new information and welcoming energy. We are committed to providing you with a great experience. 

Never been to a CARST Conference? With our online format, the conference has never been easier to attend : join us from the comfort of your own home as we catch up on radon initiatives from across the country and around the world!

New attendees and seasoned attenders alike will have a chance to learn something new, and to catch up with radon colleagues and friends from afar.  With no fixed location this year, we're touring the country to bring you a Conference experience that celebrates our 10th anniversary while being truly unique!

Networking Sessions

An important part of any conference is the chance to connect with like-minded individuals.  This is especially important in the radon industry given that many of us are still pioneering in our region.  

Think networking would be a miracle during a virtual conference? At CARST we love to be creative and push the boundaries.  We are brainstorming ideas to help you have fun, connect with others across the country and maybe even forget that you are online! 

Check out our creative networking sessions.

Conference Schedule

Our goal this year is to strike the perfect balance of informative and fun, all without keeping you stuck in your seat for 7 hours a day!

Conference Package

What to expect in your Conference Package?

For many of us, every great day at a Conference starts with a great cup of coffee!  This year, our coffee is sourced from Rooftop Coffee in Fernie, BC.  This family-owned coffee roaster and café has put a new spin on coffee "to-go".  Check it out in your conference package this April!

Maybe you prefer tea? We travel (virtually, of course) to Northern Québec, where the traditional knowledge of Inuit elders has created a range of delicious herbal teas. Each Conference package will include a selection of Cloudberry, Crowberry, and Arctic Blend, all the while supporting important programs through the Avataq organization.

Our sponsors are going to spoil you.  We have a few surprises in the box as our sponsors are sending us items to include, great items - we know you will love!

This is our 10th Anniversary and so we wanted to celebrate which includes giving you all a free t-shirt!  We have sourced t-shirts from Blackhare, a small family run creative business specializing in original, handprinted graphic tees and apparel. Everything is printed using non-toxic, eco-friendly inks. Hand-made with love in Canada.

Specify your colour and size on the registration form.  

Additional t-shirts available for $25 each
