The PHAI remains focused on performing a large-scale environmental cleanup in the towns of Port Hope and Port Granby while minimizing impacts on the local community. Residents and business owners are key stakeholders in the project and are kept informed about upcoming work and how these activities impact their daily lives.
As the largest environmental remediation project in Canada, the PHAI also attracts attention from the wider public and targeted stakeholders who are interested either personally or professionally about the successful cleanup of low-level radioactive waste in these communities.
Through our Public Information Program, CNL provides presentations to different groups about the project activities. These presentations may be a general overview on the projects or more specific to the organization’s needs. Last year more than 90 presentations, tours, and stakeholder group meetings were held.
Staying connected with the local community, the public and all of the many stakeholders is essential to the success of the PHAI. As the Port Granby Project continues to move waste and the Port Hope Project remediation begins this spring, 2018 promises to be just as busy and we look forward to ongoing opportunities to engage the public and share news about the Port Hope Area Initiative.
