In November 2010, the Municipality of Ignace became the first municipality in Canada to “express interest” in the Nuclear Waste Management Organization’s program to find a location and then construct a “deep geological repository” for the burial of all of Canada’s highly radioactive nuclear fuel waste. In November 2013, as part of “Step 3” of the NWMO siting process, 647 square kilometres of crown land in four blocks surrounding Ignace were set aside for detailed study as potential nuclear waste burial sites.
