A focus of the NWMO is protecting people and the environment, including the public, our employees and those with whom we interact. Like other organizations in Canada and around the world, we’re taking steps to help flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic and contribute to the health and well-being of our colleagues and the communities where we are active.
Since March 16th NWMO employees have been working remotely, and all of our offices have been temporarily closed since Friday, March 20, 2020.
Training, conferences, events and travel have been canceled or postponed to keep employees and the people with whom we work safe. This means no face-to-face meetings but we’re using teleconference and video conference technology to continue our work.
Technical site evaluations, such as borehole drilling, have also been paused and will resume at a later date. Technical work that can be completed remotely is continuing.
We are asking NWMO employees and those we interact with to follow government travel and public health advisories.
We all have a role to play to combat the spread of COVID-19. We will provide additional updates on our web site as appropriate.
