Engaging the public through webinars

To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, all onsite webinars and in-person presentations have been suspended until further notice. However, our virtual events and webinars remain available.

We offer webinars on specific subjects and projects, led by our experts, to inform the public and answer questions on topics related to upcoming licensing hearings, or on topics like emerging technologies. New webinars will be added regularly.

Through our Meet the Nuclear Regulator webinars, CNSC staff are offering interested stakeholders and members of the public an opportunity to learn more about various aspects of what and how the CNSC regulates.
