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. Canada’s nuclear technology and industry can be part of the solution.
That is why, in 2018, we highlight the importance of Canada’s nuclear advantage.
