Note: The Quebec Lung Association is working with the Comité intersectoriel québécois sur le radon to map average radon concentrations across the province. To this end, they are asking people who buy their dosimeters to sign, on a volunteer basis, a form authorizing the testing laboratory to send them your results. These data, of course, remain entirely confidential and are used only for statistical purposes.
