Used Nuclear Fuel Transportation

Used Nuclear Fuel Transportation

Canada's plan for the long-term management of used nuclear fuel includes transporting it from current interim storage facilities to a deep geological repository at a new centralized site.

The location for the new site has not yet been selected. However, plans are well underway for the development of a safe and socially acceptable transportation plan.

Transportation of radioactive material is a well-established practice. Over 50 years, there have been more than 20,000 shipments worldwide of used nuclear fuel, using road, rail and water transport. Canada has proven, and continues to demonstrate, its ability to safely transport used fuel, with hundreds of shipments made since the 1960s.
