We are The North Shore Nuclear Waste Community Liaison Committee (NSNWCLC) established by Township of The North Shore Council in February 2013. Our objective is to help the people of the Township of The North Shore learn about Canada’s plan for used nuclear fuel and involve the Township of The North Shore residents in these learning activities. NSNWCLC members were selected through an open process.
The Township of The North Shore is one of 15 communities currently involved in the NWMO Learn More Program. The majority of these communities have asked the NWMO to begin the more detailed preliminary assessment studies (Step 3 of a nine-step process). No community has yet moved beyond Step 3 as this work is still underway. For more information on Step 3, please visit: www.nwmo.ca/sitingprocess_feasibilitystudies
The NSNWCLC website is an important resource for our community as we continue in Step 3 (Preliminary Assessment of Potential Suitability) of the NWMO site selection process. Entirely composed of area residents, our working group performs several key functions, among them helping to develop an accurate description of our community and the surrounding region, keeping fellow residents informed about the results of preliminary assessments, making sure that residents’ concerns are addressed.
