Canada’s non-policy on radioactive waste


Efforts to raise awareness and support for a stronger Radioactive Waste Policy in Canada continue. The recent draft policy released by Natural Resource Canada does not meet our expectations, nor the needs of the many of you who engaged in the review process. We
continue to push our recommendations and engage in conversations with the government, fellow advocacy groups, rights holders and stakeholders to move this issue forward.

To help build support, we recently partnered with Our Living Waters to release our study of alternatives, and why it will only become more pressing as new technology such as Small Modular Reactors become more prevalent. The story lays out the case for a more robust policy, explains why the current draft fails to meet the need, and why freshwater advocates must pay attention.
