Timeline of Presidents

Launch the timeline of Presidents

In 2016, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) celebrated its 70th anniversary and 70 years of nuclear safety in Canada. Nuclear safety means protecting health and the environment at every stage in the nuclear fuel cycle – from uranium mining to power generation, nuclear research, nuclear facilities and prescribed equipment, industrial and medical applications of nuclear materials and waste disposal. We also monitor for environmental impacts from nuclear activities, and fulfill Canada’s international commitments on non-proliferation.

The Timeline of Presidents explores the CNSC’s history of nuclear safety in Canada and takes a closer look at the most important events of each president’s term.
