CNA Congratulates Canadian Nuclear Power Industry on Excellent Safety Performance

December 19, 2016

OTTAWA (December 19, 2016) – The Canadian Nuclear Association (CNA) congratulates Bruce Power, Ontario Power Generation (OPG) and NB Power on an excellent overall safety performance during 2015, as evaluated in an annual report by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC).

“The CNSC report reinforces the Canadian nuclear industry’s strong commitment to safety above all else,” said Dr. John Barrett, CNA President and CEO. “The rigorous and continuous oversight by the CNSC, Canada’s nuclear watchdog, is how we know that people and the environment are always protected.”

The Regulatory Oversight Report for Canadian Nuclear Power Plants: 2015 report provides the CNSC’s assessment of the Canadian nuclear power industry’s safety performance and details the progress of regulatory issues and initiatives.

Through site inspections, reviews and assessments, the report shows that the plants all operated safely in 2015. Moreover, it says that they all made adequate provisions for the protection of the health, safety and security of people and the environment from the use of nuclear energy, and took the necessary measures to implement Canada’s international obligations on the peaceful use of nuclear technology.
