Thanks for making it all possible, Canadian Nuclear Laboratories!

Wow! This is amazing

With this morning’s announcement on the passing of His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, we, at CNL, wanted to share a few memories of a very special occasion when Prince Philip visited our Chalk River campus.

Over the decades, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip made many trips to Canada. And on occasion, he travelled to Canada by himself. One of those individual trips included a cross-Canada visit in 1954. This particular tour was designed to highlight Canada’s post-war development of science and natural resources as well as to take in the British Empire Games.

On July 30, 1954, Prince Philip was given a tour of our Chalk River Laboratories site by then-company president, W.J. Bennett. The Duke visited the National Research eXperimental (NRX) reactor – which at the time was among the world’s most powerful research reactors – as well as other facilities at our site.

As you might expect, the entire team was excited to host the Duke during this time and showcase the capabilities of Canada’s leading nuclear science and technology organization.
