On this day, 32 years ago, the tragic mass shooting at l'École Polytechnique de Montréal (December 6, 1989) saw the promising lives of 14 young women cut violently short. As an organization driven by science, engineering and technical disciplines, this tragic event is made even more impactful for many within CNL.

In 1991, the Parliament of Canada declared December 6 to be the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. This day is about honouring those who have experienced gender-based violence; it is also a time to take action.

We all have a role to play in this. Please take the time today to reflect on the meaning of this day, and consider how you can contribute to creating a culture of respect, helping to ensure that tragedies like l'École Polytechnique de Montréal never happen again.

Today is #WorldNuclearEnergyDay, a day on which CNL and others in Canada's #nuclear community show our support for, and pride in this amazing technology which supplies clean energy, serves as a live-saving tool in the fight against cancer, and helps to enable advancements in our understanding of the world around us.

This year, #worldnuclearenergyday recognizes the commitment of all those in this energy sector who worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to provide the energy to power our homes, businesses and other critical infrastructure.

#OTD Why December 2? On this day, Fermi’s first nuclear reactor named Chicago Pile-1 became the first in the world to create a self-sustaining chain reaction. #DYK Canada wasn't far behind, as second in the world to achieve this feat, with our ZEEP (Zero Energy Experimental Pile) achieving criticality in 1945.

Project agreement signed for the construction of the Advanced Nuclear Materials Research Centre.

Construction is scheduled to begin next year!

As the largest single capital investment in the revitalization of the Chalk River campus, the ANMRC will be a 10,000 square metre research complex that will accommodate 240 employees and consolidate key capabilities from aging facilities that are scheduled for decommissioning. The ANMRC will feature 12 new shielded cells that will enable post-irradiation examination of small modular reactor (SMR) and next-generation nuclear fuels, and glovebox facilities to support the development of advanced fuel fabrication concepts.

Just ensure they design the cell windows so that can be easily replaced. 👌

Congrats!
