The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) implemented its Independent Environmental Monitoring Program (IEMP) to verify that the public and environment around CNSC-regulated nuclear facilities are not adversely affected by releases to the environment. This verification is achieved through independent sampling and analysis by the CNSC.
The accompanying dataset contains information about lost, stolen and found licensable sealed sources and radiation devices from 2008 to 2018. Licensees have an obligation to report these occurrences. The dataset was generated by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) from events reported to the CNSC by licensees and members of the public. The same information is used to produce the Reports on Lost or Stolen Sealed Sources and Radiation Devices that is published on the CNSC’s website.
In general, Canadians are not supportive of the current mandatory minimum penalties (MMPs) regime and prefer a more individualized approach to sentencing.
We also found:
Most Canadians indicated that they have a low to moderate level of knowledge of MMPs (52% low and 28% moderate).
Over three quarters (77%) of Canadians believed that in general, applying the same minimum sentence to all offenders who are convicted of the same offence is now fair and appropriate. Only 16% of Canadians believed MMPs lead to fair sentences.
The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC), formerly the Atomic Energy Control Board (AECB), has legislative control of nuclear fuel cycle materials and man-made radionuclides. However, naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) is exempt from CNSC jurisdiction except for the import, export and transport of the material. Therefore, jurisdiction over use and radiation exposure to NORM rests with each Canadian province and territory.
The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) is publishing total annual releases of radionuclides released directly to the environment from nuclear facilities.
This update includes 2019 radionuclide loading data and a correction for a transcription error in the uranium mines and mills database for 2014 Rabbit Lake Po-210 value - 138.2 corrected to 96.7 MBq/year.
The accompanying dataset contains all transactions catalogued in the Sealed Source Tracking System for the 2017 calendar year. The SSTS is used in conjunction with the National Sealed Source Registry to track and report the movement of high- and very high-risk sealed sources within Canada. Sealed sources are radioactive nuclear substances that are encapsulated or bonded to a cover to prevent the loss of radioactive contents. Sealed sources are used in a variety of medical, industrial, commercial and academic and research applications.
Railway Administrative Monetary Penalties are fines issued by Transport Canada to corporations and individuals for contraventions to the Railway Safety Act, or regulations and rules made under the Act.

Reader's Note: This publication presents results of an online public opinion survey completed by a sample of Canadians who received an invitation through email, Facebook and Twitter (called "open link" sample; see method for more details). This survey mirrored a survey conducted with a representative sample of Canadians, the results of which are available at Research on Justice issues.
In general, respondents were not supportive of the current MMP regime and preferred a more individualized approach to sentencing. Compared to the representative sample of Canadians, respondents to the open link survey were more knowledgeable of MMPs, more supportive of full discretion for judges in sentencing, and less supportive of MMPs.
