Your safety – it's in everything we do

That's why the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission strives year round to be a world-class regulator

In 2018 we oversaw three major licence renewals...

continued our efforts to ensure the environment is protected...

and took steps to improve the way we serve Canadians

In the new year, we will continue to:

– Maintain a highly skilled workforce

– Do our part through leadership to keep the world safe

– Be ready to respond

– Enforce the highest safety standards

– Ensure we are transparent and we engage

Because we don't just work in your community

We also live there
