AECL EACL and CNL welcomed a very special guest to the Chalk River Laboratories yesterday!

The Honourable Todd Smith, Minister of Energy for the Province of Ontario, took time out of his busy schedule to visit Canada’s national nuclear laboratories, and to learn more about how CNL can help the province expand its nuclear energy capacity. Minister Smith also used the opportunity to address AECL and CNL staff, respond to employee questions, and tour some of our facilities.

Overall, it was a great opportunity to host a valued partner, and a world-leader in pursuing next-generation nuclear energy! You can read more about it here: ow.ly/MQlw50QJnqg
