CNSC key behavioural competencies

In its ongoing quest to be the best nuclear regulator, the CNSC has defined the key behavioural competencies that underpin its organizational performance. These expected behaviours form the fabric of how we regulate, recruit, learn and develop.

The CNSC key behavioural competencies were designed specifically to create a flexible, agile and high-performing organization with the capability to achieve its business objectives.

The CNSC will gradually embed these four key behaviours in all its human resources practices to ensure the CNSC is consistent in its recruitment practices; engage them in learning and development; and recognize, assess and award performance, using common language with clarity and with purpose when doing so.
