Bringing CNL back into the conversation

01-Mar-2017

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.
