Chalk River | Jul 5, 2022
Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) respects the procedural directive received today from the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission regarding Indigenous engagement with the Near Surface Disposal Facility (NSDF) project proposed for our Chalk River site.
AECL’s leadership team is deeply committed to listening, to understanding, to improving and, most importantly, to taking meaningful actions to advance reconciliation with the Indigenous communities on whose lands AECL operates.
We will continue to increase our efforts to reach out to Indigenous communities. This will enrich our understanding, assure those communities that they are being heard, and demonstrate that we are living up to our obligations.
Our goal is for Indigenous communities to know that they are part of our success in effectively managing and disposing of the Government of Canada’s low-level radioactive waste as well as advancing nuclear science and technology for the benefit of all.
