NWMO explores new website with South Bruce CLC


The Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) showcased its new website to the South Bruce Community Liaison Committee (CLC) at their April meeting. The goal was to explain how the new site works and how it can support CLCs in their efforts to support learning in the community.

“We have a responsibility to inform the public about Canada’s plan for used nuclear fuel. The new website is a tool that will help ensure people have access to information about us and the work underway in their areas,” said Michelle Dassinger, Digital Communications Program Manager with the NWMO.

In the presentation Dassinger explained to committee members that changing technology is a key reason the old website needed to be refreshed.

“Our research told us people found the old website difficult to navigate, and the information available there was often complex and hard to digest,” said Dassinger. “With input from website visitors, we designed the new site to be more user-friendly and easy to navigate. We also simplified content to make it easier to read.”


The new site is mobile and tablet friendly and complies with the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). That means people with disabilities have the same user-experience when they land at www.nwmo.ca. The website also makes it easier to share content on social media.

The site features new Study Area pages that make it easy for residents to find information about the work being done in their areas. For this area, you can find news and other materials on the South Bruce page.

The new design features a questions and answer section called You Asked Us, where you can find information about a variety of topics. It also includes a section where people can search a comprehensive list of reports.
