Nuclear Power in Canada: CANDU nuclear generation plants at the Pickering, Bruce and Darlington
sites have provided more than 50 per cent of Ontario's electrical
energy for the past 18 years. Ontario's' Long Term Energy Plan released
in November 2010, calls for construction of new nuclear units at the
Darlington Site to maintain a balanced and reliable electricity supply
portfolio for the province. CANDU power plants in New Brunswick and
Quebec also supply carbon-free electricity to provincial grids. Nuclear
power projects have also been considered in both Saskatchewan and
Alberta to help these provinces reduce their Green House Gas emissions.
