The Nuclear Waste Community Advisory Committee (NWCAC) is a Committee of Council established in 2013 to work with the Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) and the community of Huron-Kinloss in the in the process of gathering information regarding the possibility of siting of a high-level nuclear waste Deep Geologic Repository (DGR) in Huron-Kinloss.
Although no community has been selected as the preferred site to host the DGR, it is still important to engage our youth and encourage them to learn more about and be involved in the implementation of Canada’s plan for the long-term management of used nuclear fuel. By building awareness of the NWMO and APM project, our youth will have a better understanding of Canada’s plan and have the capacity for future decision-making regarding the APM project for generations to come.
The NWCAC meets on the first Tuesday of each month, excluding December and January. Meetings are held in the Township of Huron-Kinloss Council Chambers, beginning at 7pm. These meetings are open to the public.
