Ignace’s “Willingness Project”

Thank you for visiting for more information!

In response to the mid-2021 launch of Ignace’s “Willingness Project,” We the Nuclear Free North has distributed an Open Letter to residents of Ignace, Dyment, Dinorwic and Wabigoon areas, outlining our concerns about a potential Deep Geological Repository including those around willingness (informed consent), the safety of transportation to the site, and the safety of the operation/presence of the repository.

Distribution of the Open Letter by Canada Post turned out to be uneven. You may download a PDF of the Open Letter here below. It is of particular interest to those in the Ignace/Dyment/Wabigoon areas, but contains much general information as well, and links to more sources.

Ignace’s “Willingness Project”

In mid-2021 the Township of Ignace launched a “willingness survey,” with the stated aim of determining support for the Nuclear Waste Management Organization’s (NWMO) proposal to bury all of Canada’s nuclear fuel waste in a Deep Geological Repository (DGR) west of Ignace – a project they call the “Adaptive Phased Management (APM) project.”

You may access Ignace’s willingness survey here: https://www.ignace.ca/survey It is currently available online, with no stated deadline. We encourage you to respond to their survey with your views.
