CNSC statement

August 12, 2022

The CNSC, in cooperation with Health Canada’s Radiation Protection Bureau, continues to closely monitor the ongoing situation in Ukraine. We want to reassure Canadians that there is no immediate radiological threat to the areas surrounding the nuclear power plants in Ukraine, to neighbouring countries or to Canadians.

We continue to work with our Canadian counterparts and members of the International Nuclear Regulators’ Association to gather information and to coordinate the assistance provided to both the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Ukrainian nuclear regulator.

The IAEA remains the most trusted and credible source of information on nuclear safety in Ukraine, and it continues to monitor and provide regular updates on the status of the country’s nuclear facilities. Follow the IAEA’s accounts on TwitterLinkedIn or Facebook.
