Public Information Program

The Port Hope Area Initiative (PHAI) Public Information Program sets out the protocol for ongoing, timely and accurate public communication about the activities of the PHAI. It is reviewed and updated as necessary while the PHAI is being implemented to ensure it continues to provide appropriate direction.

The Public Information Program supports Canadian Nuclear Laboratories’ (CNL) overall mission to lead the cleanup of historic low-level radioactive waste in Port Hope and Port Granby in an environmentally responsible and cost-effective manner.

CNL is committed to providing the public with up-to-date information about current and planned PHAI activities. Through our Public Information Program, CNL regularly shares information and project updates with the Port Hope and Port Granby communities and encourages public input.

Members of the public are welcome to contact us by phone or email or to drop by CNL’s Project Information Office at 25 Henderson Street in Port Hope to meet with staff and learn about the projects.

Current information about the projects is readily accessible through the PHAI website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and a variety of communication products and outreach activities ensure that the local community and broader public have up-to-date information about the projects. CNL provides project updates and tours of the project sites to interested residents, groups, schools, organizations and delegations;  contact us for more information

The program supports the Port Hope Project Waste Nuclear Substance Licence and Port Granby Project Waste Nuclear Substance Licence issued to CNL by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) and is guided by CNSC regulatory document REGDOC-3.2.1 Public Information and Disclosure, and is aligned with the principles of CNL’s corporate public information program.
