The Meritorious Service Award recognizes significant services provided to the Canadian Radiation Protection Association (CRPA) or to the radiation protection community in general. This year there were two recipients: Carole Savoie and Jeff Fleming.
This coming February, CRPA joins with the Health Physics Society, the American Academy of Health Physics, American Association of Physicists in Medicine, the American Nuclear Society, the Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors, the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements, and the Mexican Society of Irradiation and Dosimetry to host the first ever North American Regional Congress for the International Radiation Protection Association. This will be a hybrid event held both virtually and in person in St. Louis, Missouri.
The Federal Provincial Territorial Radiation Protection Committee was created to advance the development and harmonization of practices and standards for radiation protection within federal, provincial, and territorial jurisdictions. The committee meets every year to allow regulatory radiation protection officials from across Canada to share information, discuss challenges, and recommend courses of action.
