Help us create a safe, integrated, long-term strategy for radioactive waste in Canada

Share your thoughts on the best options to ensure all of Canada's radioactive waste is managed safely, responsibly, and effectively long after we're gone

Canada is safely managing its radioactive waste today and already has several long-term plans and projects in place. However, there are some gaps in addressing certain streams, specifically low-level and intermediate-level radioactive waste, that need an integrated, long-term strategy. The Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) has been asked by the Minister of Natural Resources Canada to lead the development of this strategy by engaging with Canadians and Indigenous peoples.

We are planning a series of interactive, accessible and collaborative engagements that welcome a diversity of voices. Your thoughts and perspective play an important role in identifying the best approach to ensure all of Canada's radioactive waste is managed safely, responsibly and effectively long after we're gone.

Join us as we explore what’s most important to Canadians and Indigenous peoples on this topic and help us shape Canada’s strategy.  See the timeline.
