The Government of Canada, through Natural Resources Canada, monitors us on an ongoing basis to ensure compliance with the Nuclear Fuel Waste Act.
The project will be subject to a thorough and comprehensive regulatory review process to ensure it is implemented in a manner that protects people and the environment, now and in the future. The site selected will meet or exceed regulatory requirements.
The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission will review and assess the project, and ultimately, it will issue licences authorizing the project to proceed to different phases of its life cycle development. An environmental assessment will be required under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act to ensure the project will not cause significant adverse environmental effects. Various aspects of transportation will also need to be approved.
Provincial legislation will cover many aspects of the project, including emergency preparedness, public and occupational health and safety, and environment. Municipal requirements will also need to be addressed.
