Vision, Mission and Values
Our vision is the long-term management of Canada’s nuclear waste in a manner that safeguards people and respects the environment, now and in the future.
The purpose of NWMO is to develop and implement, collaboratively with Canadians, a management approach for the long-term care of Canada’s used nuclear fuel that is socially acceptable, technically sound, environmentally responsible and economically feasible.
The fundamental beliefs that guide us in our work include:
We will conduct ourselves with openness, honesty and respect for all persons and organizations with whom we deal.
We will pursue the best knowledge, understanding and innovative thinking in our analysis, engagement processes and decision-making.
We will seek the participation of all communities of interest and be responsive to a diversity of views and perspectives. We will communicate and consult actively, promoting thoughtful reflection and facilitating a constructive dialogue.
We will be fully responsible for the wise, prudent and efficient management of resources, and be accountable for all our actions.
We will be open and transparent in our process, communications and decision-making, so that the approach is clear to all Canadians.
