Canada has the nuclear advantage. We have the tools, the technology, the people and the solutions to one of the world’s most pressing problems: climate change. Governments and people are scrambling to figure out how we can swiftly, efficiently and with certainty de-carbonize our societies and get the clean and affordable energy we need for sustainable economic growth in the decades ahead.
Today’s nuclear technology has the proven the solution. Tomorrow’s advanced nuclear technology will do even more to provide the power we need and want – not just to large urban centers, but also to remote, off-grid communities and those living in energy poverty. Think of what small and remote communities could achieve with clean water, health, and food security – if they had unlimited clean heat and electricity. Nuclear can make that possible. Think of mining and oil sands sites – where it’s possible for these locations to be powered by small nuclear.
Nuclear technology contributes to nine of the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Think of what advanced Canadian nuclear reactors, developed and built by young Canadians, can give to the world. Imagine! It’s within our grasp. This is what CNA2018 is all about. This is Canada’s Nuclear Advantage. This is the Next Generation. Come and be a part of it!
