Since its inception, the NWMO has been working in partnership with specialists and the public in the design and implementation of Canada's plan for the long-term management of used nuclear fuel.

We are committed to building sustainable, long-term relationships with interested and potentially affected individuals and communities. This includes communities that expressed an interest in learning about the project, First Nation and Métis communities in the area, and surrounding municipalities. We also place a strong importance on engaging youth.

Our technical program benefits from ongoing partnerships with technical and scientific specialists and organizations around the globe, as well as our sister organizations in many countries.

Looking ahead, we will continue to pursue a broad range of partnerships as we advance through the site selection process and enter into the construction and operational phases of the project.
