Gentilly-2 facilities

Prevention and Safety

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) regulates the nuclear sector in Canada. It applies an approval regime that requires applicants and licencees to prove that their activities are in compliance with nuclear safety standards as well as legislative and regulatory requirements.

Hydro-Québec keeps its emergency measures plan for all facilities up to date. It updated the plan for Gentilly-2 upon the announcement of the closure of the generating station. The plan calls for a permanent liaison between the Organisation régionale de la sécurité civile and Hydro-Québec to make sure that all actions taken at the Gentilly-2 facility are carried out in compliance with those done outside the site, whenever necessary.
