Why we do it

To prove that nuclear energy can be an enduring benefit today and for generations to come, far into the future.

Focus Areas


A nuclear molecule

We’re bringing the same excellence and spirit of innovation to decommissioning nuclear stations that we brought to building and operating them. We’re executing a long-term plan to make sure the job is done right.

Waste Stewardship

We’re finding ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle the by-products of nuclear power generation. We’re refining plans for the stewardship of waste over the long term.

Site Repurposing

We’re creating a lasting positive legacy for the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station site by understanding how the industry has repurposed other nuclear sites to productive uses for the benefit of the economy and local communities.

We’re bringing together industry, community and Indigenous partners, and academia to create innovative, long-term solutions. We’re helping develop the next generation of diverse professional and leaders in the nuclear sector.
