What about paint on the exterior of my home?

Exterior paint on homes older than 1990 may contain lead. Sometimes leaving lead-based paint alone is safer than removing it, as long as it is not chipping or within the reach of children. THEP’s yard assessment includes exterior paint testing for lead as of May 2023. Due to the high volume of requests, properties will be addressed in priority order.   If the paint is chipping or peeling, visit the Government of Canada’s home safety page for more resources.
