WL Closure Project - Industry Day

On behalf of the Government of Canada, CNL manages nuclear liabilities at the Whiteshell Laboratories site near Pinawa, Manitoba. 

CNL transitioned to a Government Owned – Contractor Operated model in September 2015; with a mandate to safely decommission and remediate the Whiteshell Laboratories site by 2024. 

Industry day will be an opportunity for businesses and contractors to gain a better understanding of the scope and procurement/contracting related to the decommissioning of CNL’s Whiteshell Laboratories site. Project leadership and staff will be on hand to present information and engage in a dialogue regarding the type of work to be performed, where likely contracting opportunities exist and provide an overview of the procurement process.
