Canada’s radioactive waste
Natural Resources Canada is the lead Department responsible for federal radioactive waste policy matters.
What is radioactive waste, where it comes from, and how it’s managed in Canada.
Protecting the health, safety and security of people and the environment is the federal government’s top priority.
We collect and compile inventory information and data from waste owners and producers and publish the data in a triennial inventory report.
Canada is a member of several international organizations in order to strengthen nuclear safety at home and abroad.
