Review of Proposed Design for Site Selection Process - Multi-Party Dialogues
In 2008 the NWMO initiated a dialogue with interested organizations and individuals. The focus of that dialogue was on important principles and elements for a fair process to identify an informed and willing community to host a deep geological repository for the safe containment and isolation of Canada’s used nuclear fuel for the long term. Guided by this input, we have developed a discussion document outlining a Proposed Process for Selecting a Site.
The purpose of the 2009 multi-party dialogues is to test and refine the Proposed Process for Selecting a Site document. The comments and the views shared in these dialogues will be used along with those received during information sessions and other dialogue activities to refine the process and ensure it is open, transparent, fair and inclusive.
Day and a half long dialogue sessions are being held to continue the discussion begun last fall. We have endeavoured again to bring together small groups of people with a wide range of perspectives and experience to discuss the proposed process.
