Emergency Planning around Canadian Nuclear Plants

Most people in Southern Ontario live near an aging nuclear reactor operating on either the Canadian or American shores of the Great Lakes. Detailed nuclear emergency response plans are inadequate. Ontario has committed to run multiple reactors beyond their original operating lives and ten of these reactors are in the Greater Toronto Area, creating risks for millions of nearby residents.

CELA engages in detailed research and advocacy to improve planning for public safety and prevention of needless risks by improving nuclear emergency planning in the Great Lakes and near other Canadian reactors.
