About the LLRWMO

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 through a cost-recovery agreement with Natural Resources Canada, the federal department that provides the funding and establishes national policy for LLRW management.

The mandate of the LLRWMO is to:

  • resolve historic waste problems that are a federal responsibility;

  • establish, as required, a user-pay service for the disposal of low-level radioactive waste produced on an ongoing basis; and

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