Fukushima

March 11, 2014 marked the three-year anniversary of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that took place in Japan, as well as the ensuing events at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station. Since the Fukushima incident, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has regularly communicated information about the steps taken to ensure that the lessons learned from the event are properly applied in Canada to enhance the safety of our nuclear facilities. The public is encouraged to make use of the following CNSC resources to better understand the events that took place at Fukushima and the measures being taken by the nuclear industry in Canada to learn from this incident.
