The community of Huron-Kinloss initiated its involvement in the site selection process by formally expressing interest in learning about the project in 2012.
In 2020, after several years of progressively more detailed study and engagement, we concluded that the community of Huron-Kinloss will not be considered a potential host for the project. However, as a neighbour to South Bruce, the community will continue to play a role as activities there continue.
Canada's plan for the safe, long-term management of used nuclear fuel will only move forward in any area with interested communities, along with First Nation, Métis and surrounding communities, working in partnership to implement it.
Information detailing work we completed in Huron-Kinloss through steps one to three of the site selection process is available below.
