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 since 2008. 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) is publishing total annual releases of radionuclides released directly to the environment from nuclear facilities.
This update includes 2021 radionuclide loading data.
This fact sheet presents information on Canadian federal offenders who were admitted to federal custody between fiscal years 2010/11 and 2019/20 for an offence punishable by a mandatory minimum penalty (MMP) as the most serious offence on sentence. Data were obtained from the Correctional Service of Canada. The primary aim of this research study was to examine whether Indigenous and racialized (i.e., non-White, non-Indigenous) offenders were differentially affected by MMPs over the ten-year period.
As Canada’s nuclear regulator, the CNSC reviews the environmental protection measures put in place for every facility we regulate. The Environmental Protection Review report series offers a summary of CNSC staff’s technical assessment of how effectively licensees are protecting human health and the environment in the communities in which they are operating.
The purpose of the report is to share CNSC staff’s findings from the review of NB Power's environmental protection measures for the Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station. This includes any possible environmental releases as part of normal operations, and the risk of radiological or hazardous substances posed to the environment and human health.
Nuclear licensees operate across Canada. This includes uranium mines and mills, uranium processing facilities, nuclear power plants, research reactors, particle accelerators, and nuclear substances processing facilities. All of these facilities are licensed by the CNSC and are subject to strict regulatory oversight to ensure the safety of the public and the environment.
