The nuclear industry is currently experiencing a global
renaissance, primarily as a response to the pressing need to produce a
clean, non-greenhouse gas emitting power generation source.
Canada’s nuclear industry will have a significant role to play
in this new expansion with new builds here in Ontario and elsewhere,
refurbishment and reactor extension projects as well as CANDU reactor
products and services.
