Careers in nuclear

Growing workforce

The nuclear industry in Canada is being driven by refurbishment projects on existing reactors, while new projects are being planned or considered in Ontario, New Brunswick, Quebec, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. Because half of the nuclear industry’s workforce will be eligible to retire within 10 years, the industry is looking to attract new workers who have a variety of backgrounds and skills.

Types of careers

Careers in the nuclear industry are frequently available to engineers, technicians, skilled trade workers, and a full range of financial, human resources, communications, education and training, and administrative staff.
