Aamjiwnaang First Nation

Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO)

In February, 2017 Council signed the Aboriginal Partnership Resources Program Agreement with Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) in support of mutual learning in regards to long-term management of used nuclear fuel, including the deep geological repository.  The funding provided by NWMO will allow education and information about the process to the Aamjiwnaang community.  As part of the education process there will be information booths, focus groups and Open Houses.  To date, there has been an information booth at the Home Show and Earth Day.  Community Members were also taken on a tour of the Bruce Nuclear Plant Dry Storage Area.  Further events and Open Houses will be scheduled throughout the year.  Information will be available soon on the First Open House.

Also as part of the information sharing, Greg Plain, Senior Engagement Advisor, Aboriginal Relations, NWMO will be doing six columns.  The columns will be shared in the Tribe-Une and on the website.

This is the first of six columns.
