Ontario is prepared to respond to nuclear emergencies both provincially and internationally.
Ontario’s nuclear reactors are built with multiple safeguards making nuclear accidents unlikely. However, as we have seen with most recently, of Fukushima, some nuclear emergencies can occur. Lessons learned following these incidents will help strengthen nuclear safety and personal preparedness for all Ontarians.
While the probability of a serious accident at one of these facilities remains very low, anyone living or working within 10 km of a nuclear facility needs to learn what to do in the event of an incident.
