NWMO re-opens Learn More Centres

        Ignace Centre

Encouraging learning about Canada’s plan for the safe, long-term management of used nuclear fuel includes being present and active in communities engaged in the site selection process. To this end, the Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) has re-opened our Learn More Centres in the Municipality of South Bruce and the Township of Ignace, following recommendations and advice from the Ontario government and public health officials.


The Learn More Centres are designed to support increasingly detailed studies and ongoing learning about the project with people in each potential siting area. They were temporarily closed this past March due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

The Municipality of South Bruce and the Township of Ignace are both involved in the NWMO’s site selection process for a deep geological repository for Canada’s used nuclear fuel.
