March 30, 2016


By the NWMO

It may have been Manitouwadge Frosty Days Carnival 2016, but all the fun and community spirit warmed the hearts of everyone who participated in the event held from February 12 to 15. And in keeping with Valentine's Day, hearts were visible on the Kiwissa Ski Hill at the 9th annual Cardboard Box Race on February 14. For the second straight year, the NWMO was pleased to participate by helping to sponsor carnival events.
About the NWMO

The Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) is a not-for-profit organization tasked with the safe, long-term management of Canada’s used nuclear fuel inside a deep geological repository, in a manner that protects people and the environment for generations to come.

Founded in 2002, the NWMO has been guided for more than 20 years by a dedicated team of world-class scientists, engineers and Indigenous Knowledge Holders that are developing innovative and collaborative solutions for nuclear waste management. Canada’s plan will only proceed in an area with informed and willing hosts, where the municipality, First Nation and Métis communities, and others in the area are working together to implement it. The NWMO plans to select a site in 2024, and two areas remain in our site selection process: the Wabigoon Lake Ojibway Nation-Ignace area in northwestern Ontario and the Saugeen Ojibway Nation-South Bruce area in southern Ontario.
