Canada’s nuclear regulator invites you to open houses in Winnipeg, Pinawa and Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba
The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) will hold open houses to provide information about the environmental assessment and licensing process currently underway for the Canadian Nuclear Laboratories’ In Situ Decommissioning of the Whiteshell Reactor #1 Project.
The open houses are being held during the public comment period on the draft environmental impact statement (EIS). The objectives of the sessions are to inform the public of the environmental assessment and licensing process for the proposed project; provide information on the proposed project; and clarify how the public can participate in the process, including providing comments on the draft EIS. In particular, CNSC staff will be available to discuss the content of the draft EIS and answer questions from the public about the project.
