Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) is announcing its long-term strategy and vision for the future of Canada’s premier nuclear laboratory. This is an exciting step for CNL, and one which many across Canada’s scientific and nuclear community have been waiting for. This strategy outlines a vision for CNL over the next ten years, which positions the organization as a global leader in nuclear science and technology; an organization that is commercially successful, respected for its scientific capabilities, and home to world-leading expertise based out of a modern, efficient and collaborative campus environment.
Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC), in partnership with Public Safety Canada (PSC), has selected 26 new science and technology projects for negotiations; CNL is heavily involved in three of these projects. Project proposals have been selected following the May 2016 Call for Proposals for the Canadian Safety and Security Program (CSSP).
People may soon be able to look to the stars and take pride knowing that Canada played a key role in future space exploration. Recently, Ontario Power Generation (OPG) and its venture arm, Canadian Nuclear Partners, announced their participation in a project to produce isotopes in support of deep space exploration; a project that relies on CNL to play an important role.
Last week was a big week for CNL and for nuclear in this country. Over the five-day span, the entire industry came together in Ottawa at the Canadian Nuclear Association’s (CNA) Annual Conference and Trade Show to talk about nuclear: its current state, its future outlook, challenges, and begin conversations about how to move forward. While the CNA provides the opportunity, a great deal of work is done on the margins of the event, including discussions with host communities, bilateral meetings with government officials, commercial business and a substantial push on communications both within the industry but also to the general public and stakeholders.
