Low-Level Radioactive Waste Management Office

The Low-Level Radioactive Waste Management Office (LLRWMO) was established in 1982 to carry out the responsibilities of the federal government for the management of low-level radioactive waste in Canada.  The Office is operated by Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) through a cost-recovery agreement with Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), the federal department that provides the funding, direction and priorities for the LLRWMO.

The main activities of the LLRWMO are:

  • resolve historic waste problems that are a federal responsibility;

  • address public information needs about low-level radioactive waste.




“The environmental impact of radium remains even today. The legacy of radio-luminescent paints, radium therapy needles, mining and processing and associated contamination has long been pursued in France, Belgium, Canada, the USA and other countries. The management of these tasks provides a rich and fascinating history as well as successes and lessons learned in environmental remediation.“

This "Radium Remediation Compendium DVD" provides an immediate resource to those who wish to investigate these subjects further and a means of adding to the resource.
