Information on the Decommissioning of the Douglas Point Prototype Reactor for Indigenous Communities

Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) understands that your community requires specific information on any project a proponent is proposing to engage on. The following documents provide some of this preliminary information, including: project size, project type, location, anticipated timelines, an overview of environmental inventories, anticipated impacts on territory and rights.

Quick Facts

This document is a list of common questions about CNL’s plan to decommission the Douglas Point facility. It includes straightforward information in everyday language about the anticipated timeline, the location and the project type.

Indigenous Engagement Report

This Indigenous Engagement Report is an evolving document that details which Indigenous communities CNL is engaging with for the Douglas Point decommissioning project, how CNL plans to engage with these communities, any anticipated impacts on rights and territory, any feedback received from communities to date and how CNL is looking into incorporating this feedback into the project.

Detailed Decommissioning Plan

This Detailed Decommissioning Plan (DDP) gives a general look at how Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) is planning to decommission the Douglas Point facility. CNL will be preparing more volumes of the DDP that will go into detail on the five specific sub-phases (described in Section 6, Table 6-1) of decommissioning. These future DDPs will also be submitted to the federal regulator, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) and will be subject to review before a decision on whether the project can proceed is made.

This DDP outlines the size of the project (Section 2.2, Figure 2-2), the project type (Section 6), location (Section 2.2, Figure 2-1) and an overview of inventories (Section 7.2 and Section 7.3).

CNL appreciates any input you and your community have for this report.
