For more information, please see How to Report an Incident.
The FNEP describes how overall coordination is to occur in the event of a nuclear emergency in Canada. In an emergency, the FNEP, with support from Public Safety Canada, CNSC and other agencies, coordinates the federal emergency response with provincial and municipal government agencies.
The provinces and territories have their own emergency plans which address their specific needs. Federal, provincial and municipal coordination is a key element of all emergency plans in Canada.
All licensee organizations must be well-prepared to respond to emergencies, and to cooperate with local, provincial, federal and international authorities.
