The nuclear sector at a crossroads : fostering innovation and energy security for Canada and the world / James Maloney, chair.: XC49-1/1-421-5E-PDF

“The Canadian nuclear sector has undergone several major changes over the past few years, namely the restructuring of Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, including the sale of the corporation’s Candu division and the creation of the Canadian National Laboratories; the decision to permanently shut down the NRU by 2018; and the initiation of a number of plans and proposals with implications for Canada’s economy, energy security,environment, public health, international leadership and exports. In light of these changes – and as part of its broader study entitled The Future of Canada’s Oil and Gas, Mining and Nuclear Sectors: Innovation, Sustainable Solutions and Economic Opportunities – the Standing Committee on Natural Resources (“the Committee”) invited a wide range of experts from government, industry and civil society in order to investigatethe overall state of the Canadian nuclear industry. In this report, the Committee’s findings are organized according to four themes: 1) considerations regarding the governance, safety and waste management of nuclear material and/or facilities in Canada; 2) the state of the nuclear energy industry in Canada and abroad; 3) the future of Canadian nuclear R&D; and 4) recommendations to the Government of Canada. The Committee is pleased to present its report, which concludes its study on the nuclear sector"--Introd., p. 1.
