Our Vision: To be the expert voice of Canadian radiation safety professionals, both nationally and internationally
Our Mission: We strive to ensure the safe use of radiation by providing scientific knowledge, education, expertise and policy guidance for radiation protection
Welcome to the Canadian Radiation Protection Association’s website. We are a group of Radiation Safety professionals representing universities, hospitals, uranium mining and refining industries, nuclear power plants, radiation safety consulting, and government agencies (federal, provincial and territorial). As a body, we are the expert voice of Canadian radiation safety professionals both nationally and internationally covering both ionising (e.g., x-rays, radioactivity) and non-ionising radiation (e.g., lasers, microwaves). We strive to ensure the safe use of radiation by providing scientific knowledge, education, expertise and policy guidance for radiation protection. We are also an Associate Society of the International Radiation Protection Association and can network with more than 20,000 members in 60 countries.
