Nuclear Fuel Waste Bureau

Welcome to the Nuclear Fuel Waste Bureau. The Bureau was formed within the federal department of Natural Resources to administer the oversight responsibilities of the Government of Canada, and the Minister of Natural Resources under the 2002 Act respecting the Long-term Management of Nuclear Fuel Waste, or in short, the Nuclear Fuel Waste Act.

The objective of the Nuclear Fuel Waste Act is to ensure that the long-term management of nuclear fuel waste will be carried out in a comprehensive, integrated and economically-sound manner. This Act complements the Nuclear Safety and Control Act which oversees the health, safety, environment and security aspects of the long-term management of nuclear fuel waste.

This web site is dedicated to informing all stakeholders, particularly the public, on planned and current nuclear fuel waste management activities. It was developed in accordance with the principles of openness and transparency. It is meant to be interactive and public input is welcome.
