About the LLRWMO

The LLRWMO Structure

The LLRWMO is operated by Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) through an agreement with Natural Resources Canada (NRCan). NRCan provides funding and establishes national policy for low-level radioactive waste management.

LLRWMO activities are carried out under three programs:

1)  Historic Waste
The federal government has accepted responsibility for the management of historic waste under the Historic Waste program. The LLRWMO carries out cleanup and long-term management of this waste on behalf of the federal government. Historic waste is found at various locations in Canada.

2)  Ongoing Waste
Producers and owners are responsible for the management of their ongoing waste. Under the Ongoing Waste program, the LLRWMO supports NRCan in its development and implementation of national policies and strategies for the disposal of this waste, including establishment of a user-pay disposal service. The LLRWMO also assists NRCan in meeting its commitment to international organizations such as the International Atomic Energy Agency and the Nuclear Energy Agency of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

3)  Information
The LLRWMO addresses public information needs related to specific historic waste projects and to low-level radioactive waste management in general.
