CNA2023: Canada’s Global Leadership 

Strengthening Canada’s role as a global leader in nuclear technology and innovation 

The Canadian nuclear industry is enjoying momentum that hasn’t been seen in over a decade. New projects are being announced and financed, public support for nuclear is growing, and governments at all levels that are increasingly coming to understand the promise of nuclear for not only meeting Canada’s energy and climate goals, but also market opportunities overseas. 

Maintaining this momentum and ensuring Canada remains competitive will require industry to coordinate more than ever. At CNA2023, we will highlight the significant opportunities available for the Canadian nuclear industry, both domestic and international, but also focus in on the barriers that could prevent Canada from realizing the full economic and climate benefits of nuclear power.
