Implementing Adaptive Phased Management 2024-28

By working collaboratively with communities, universities and research institutions, regulatory bodies, international waste management organizations and the broader nuclear industry, the NWMO continued to make progress on implementing Canada’s plan for used nuclear fuel in 2023. We remain on track towards site selection in 2024 and ready for the regulatory decision-making process that will follow. The timelines that follow capture the progress to date, since the NWMO’s inception in 2002, as well as the anticipated timeline for future phases.

As we advance plans for intermediate-level and non-fuel high-level waste, we will publish timelines accordingly.
