CNSC Fukushima Task Force report : CC172-77/2011E-PDF

Cover image

On March 11, a magnitude 9.0 earthquake struck off the northeast coast of Japan’s main island. A devastating tsunami followed. The earthquake and tsunami left an estimated 25,000 people dead or missing, about half a million homes destroyed or damaged and 560 square kilometres of land inundated. One of several actions that the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) took in response to the accident was to set up a Task Force to investigate the lessons learned from the Fukushima Daiichi accident and their implications for Canada. This report documents the findings and recommendations of the CNSC Fukushima Task Force.
