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 20 years. Ontario's' Long Term Energy Plan
anticipates the refurbishment of existing CANDU units at Darlington and
Bruce as well as the 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 have supplied reliable and carbon-free electricity to provincial
grids. Nuclear power projects are being considered in both Saskatchewan
and Alberta to help these provinces meet their increasing electricity
supply needs while helping to reduce their green house gas emissions.
Organization of Canadian Nuclear Industries (OCI) is an association of 175 leading Canadian suppliers to the nuclear
industry in Canada and the international marketplace. OCI members
companies collectively employ more than 30,000 highly skilled and
specialized people who manufacture major equipment and components and
provide engineering services and support for CANDU and other nuclear
power plants in Canada and around the world. OCI companies also work on
medical and other safe applications of nuclear technology. OCI is the
leading voice of the Canadian nuclear supply chain and actively
promotes the production of safe, clean and reliable nuclear base load
electricity as a key part of a balanced electricity generation
portfolio in Ontario. OCI has also advocated for the continued
production of nuclear electricity in Quebec and New Brunswick and
encourages the use of nuclear energy in Western Canada.
