Isabelle Tremblay has worked at the CNSC for over 11 years. As a program officer in the Transport Licensing and Strategic Support Division, she has several responsibilities that involve nuclear safety. Isabelle supports programs that regulate the use of nuclear substances and that certify the safety of prescribed equipment before it is used in Canada.
In this role, Isabelle played an instrumental part in publishing the CNSC’s first Regulatory Oversight Report on the Use of Nuclear Substances in Canada. This report was a first in Canada and outlined the safety performance of the licensees authorized to use nuclear substances.
“The CNSC has a mandate to protect the health, safety and security of Canadians and the environment. When I am assessing the safety of a package design, I am responsible for making sure that these packages will be safe when used in Canada and that, in the event of an accident, the nuclear substances they contain will not disperse into the environment.”
Isabelle holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. Before joining the CNSC, she worked in microelectronics, designing and manufacturing both computer and network infrastructure components.
