In July 2006, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) accepted Bruce Power’s Environmental Assessment (EA) covering the refurbishment for life extension and continued operations of Units 1-4. The CNSC concluded that life extension activities and the continued operations of the Bruce A facility were not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects taking into account identified mitigation measures.

This approval was granted following a series of in-depth public consultations with local communities, stakeholders and Aboriginal groups throughout the process. The Commission’s decision was based on its consideration of the EA for the project that was prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (CEAA). All of these documents, including the CNSC decision, have been posted for public information.
