Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) engaged with Canadian and Indigenous peoples about Canada’s Integrated Strategy on Radioactive Waste and released a What We Heard report on the commonly heard themes.

FEB. 11, 2022– The What We Heard Reports summarize what the NWMO heard from participants at the engagement events hosted over the past year. The NWMO will use the insights shared by Canadians and Indigenous peoples to help understand the priorities and preferred options for managing Canada’s radioactive waste. The NWMO hosted a Summit, community dialogue sessions with Indigenous peoples, youth, elected officials and interested individuals from communities where the waste is stored today, round table sessions and technical sessions for experts, as well as an online survey. Information and learnings from these engagements, together with Modernized Radioactive Waste Policy direction from Natural Resources Canada, will inform recommendations for an Integrated Strategy on Radioactive Waste to be presented to government in 2022.
