The NWMO's Cherie Leslie checks out one of the dancing tractors that will be featured at this year's IPM in Walton.
The Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) is looking forward to participating in the 100th International Plowing Match (IPM) and Rural Expo in Walton, Ont. from September 19 to 23.
One of North America’s largest outdoor agricultural expos, IPM is expected to attract upwards of 100,000 visitors to celebrate harvest season and Ontario’s rich farm heritage.
The NWMO invites you to visit us at our booth, located in Commercial Tent #2 along First Street. For more information about IPM, visit plowingmatch.org.
We hope to see you there.
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.
