- Representation – The CNA presents members’ viewpoints to public inquiries, regulatory bodies, and to government organizations.
- Raising awareness – The CNA helps to foster an accurate public understanding of the uses of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.
- Sponsorship – The CNA sponsors activities on the successful marketing of nuclear-related products and services in Canada and around the world, as well as conferences, seminars, and courses on the development and use of nuclear energy, uranium production, and related issues.
- Networking – Member organizations establish and maintain close ties with other associations that have similar interests.
