Discussion papers

To help get your views on what key values and principles should be included in a modernized Radioactive Waste Policy, we developed discussion papers on radioactive waste topics and a series of questions that we would like you to address.

Explore the topics to learn on how it relates to the policy review and participate in the forums. We want to hear from you!

More topics will be introduced in the new year.

Waste minimization

  1. What are your views on waste minimization? Should Canada continue to use the concept of the waste hierarchy?
  2. What should be the role of Government, the regulator and waste owners with respect to minimizing radioactive waste?
  3. Are there other principles, beyond those identified by the International Atomic Energy Agency, that you believe are important to consider when designing and implementing a waste minimization program?

 

Waste storage facilities

  1. What are your views on how radioactive waste is currently stored in Canada?
  2. What should be the role of Government, the regulator, and waste owners with respect to radioactive waste storage?
