Community Update – January 24

What’s next for the future of Canada’s national nuclear laboratory?

Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) and Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) are pleased to invite you to an update on their work to build a bright and commercially successful future for the Chalk River Laboratories campus.

The webinar will discuss topics that include the revitalization of the Chalk River campus, and nuclear science and technology projects in clean energy, public health and environmental stewardship.

In recent years, CNL has developed a new corporate plan known as Vision 2030 which charts the companies programs and activities for the next decade. Among the research activities the company pursuing is the siting of small modular reactors (SMR) at the Chalk River Laboratories campus to demonstrate the safety and viability of these next-generation technologies; research related to the production and distribution of Actinium-225, a rare medical isotope that has the potential to enable a ground-breaking new form of cancer treatment, known as Targeted Alpha Therapy; and some of the largest and most complex environmental remediation projects across Canada. This is in addition to research related to hydrogen, advanced nuclear fuels, cyber security, nuclear forensics, the effects of radiation on biology, and a whole host of other fields of study.

Register below to receive a calendar notice, updates and links to related information.

CNL encourages local members of the public, Indigenous communities, elected officials and other interested residents and organizations to join in the session, learn more about CNL and AECL’s plans for the future, and ask questions that may come to mind.

We look forward to your participation.
