This schedule for the Port Hope Project shows the work that will be
undertaken to complete the project and includes the Property
Radiological Survey that is currently underway and is being carried out
over five campaigns to 2019. Remediation of large and small-scale sites
is scheduled to begin in 2018, when the engineered aboveground mound is
ready to receive waste.
The funding for Phase 2 of the PHAI, as announced by Natural Resources Canada in 2012, is $1.28 billion over 10 years to complete the Port Hope and Port Granby projects.
Most of this funding is budgeted for contracts to undertake radiological investigations, construct the long-term waste management facilities, remediate waste sites and transport the waste to the new facilities. These third-party contracts result in significant economic benefits to the region in the form of sub-contracting services and supplies.
