September 15, 2023
10:00 am to 8:00 pm
September 16, 2023
9:00 am to 4:00 pm
200 Beaver Street, Ignace ON P0T 1T0

The Wabigoon Lake Ojibway Nation-Ignace area in Northwestern Ontario is one of two potential host areas for a deep geological repository, that would isolate, and store Canada’s used nuclear fuel for the very long term.

The Township of Ignace is inviting communities to learn more about the nuclear industry and the deep geological repository project near the Revell. Please plan to attend the event and learn more about nuclear topics like nuclear energy, safety, regulations and oversight, the environment, international experiences, project economics, Indigenous Knowledge and more.


Youth are invited to explore and grow with STEM, crafts, games and activities in the Kids Energy Zone.
