The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) is Canada’s nuclear regulator. The CNSC regulates the use of nuclear energy and materials to protect the health, safety and security of Canadians and the environment; and to implement Canada’s international commitments on the peaceful use of nuclear energy.
2011 marked the 65th anniversary of the CNSC as Canada’s independent nuclear regulator. In reflecting on the history and achievements, the CNSC is determined to meet the regulatory challenges of the future. As Canada’s nuclear industry evolves, the CNSC will continue to evolve along side it. And its core commitment to Canadians will not change: the CNSC will never compromise safety.
2012 will be a busy year for the CNSC. The Public Meeting of the Commission on the Fukushima Task Force Report is expected for late-spring 2012. The CNSC will also assume chair of the International Nuclear Regulators Association which is one of the premier fora for advancing nuclear regulation.
We will never compromise nuclear safety.
