Family and friends key sources of information about Canada’s Plan: Survey

Family and friends are a big source of where our community members get their information about Canada’s plan for the safe, long-term management of used nuclear fuel, according to a survey commissioned by the Nuclear Waste Management Organization in participation with the Municipality of South Bruce.

The survey was conducted in September and October, 2019 in the Municipality of South Bruce. It was in efforts to understand how people currently access information about Canada’s plan and on communications preferences going forward.

The results of the survey can be accessed here as well as through NWMO’s website.
