I happened across this video today and I thought it was worth re-posting here. Its a report done by CBC in Ottawaabout mold in the home.
In my experience, it's not unusual to find traces of mold in resale homes. As the video suggests, some of them are toxic while others pose far less of a health risk. In any case, if you notice the presence of mold in a property you're interested in buying it's definitely worth having tested. The cost of remediation can be significant if the mold is toxic and at an advanced stage.
A company like Canadian Indoor Air Quality Investigatorscan assist you with testing if you discover traces of mold in your home or in one that you're considering. They're both well equipped to remediate as well.
CMHC has also published a helpful guide titled, Fighting Mold - A Homeowners Guide that's worth checking out.

Norm is known for his passion for technology and can most often be found exploring and experimenting with the next big thing in real estate marketing. He was the first Saskatoon real estate agent to promote a home online and has been an early adopter of new technologies ever since. “Everything about this business has changed over the past 20 years, and it will happen again in the next ten. An open mind and a curious attitude are all that’s needed to continue to find new ways to serve our clients by delivering a faster, smoother, worry-free transaction,” says Norm.
In his spare time, Norm enjoys Crossfit and cycling, some years accumulating over 2,000 kilometres on the road. He’s a strong supporter of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation and enjoys raising funds by joining fun, fitness-related initiatives like the Grouse Grind for Shelter. In 2015, he trekked the Peruvian Andes to Machu Picchu. In 2017 he walked the southern highlands of Iceland across mountains, sand, snow, ice, lava fields and forest for seven days. Collectively those initiatives raised over a million dollars for Canadian women's shelters.
