7-13 The Public Policy Context for Nuclear Liability in Canada

William Leiss & Associates Ltd. 

This paper considers the issue of nuclear liability in the context of Canadian public policy.  As outlined in the introduction, this paper discusses:

  1. the four components of risk management for major hazards, as detailed in the case of natural hazards, a scheme which arguably is applicable to major technological hazards as well; and

  2. the comprehensive allocation of responsibilities, in the case of natural hazards, between the two senior levels of government and the insurance industry; and

  3. the wider structure of multi-faceted federal laws and regulations which establish a risk management framework for nuclear installations and substances; and

  4. the place of nuclear liability within the foregoing dimensions.
