Speaker: Justin Hannah, Director, Nuclear Energy Division, Natural Resources Canada
Summary: An overview of Canada’s SMR Action Plan will be presented. Canada’s SMR Action Plan was launched on December 18th, 2020. The Action Plan is the result of a pan-Canadian effort bringing together key enablers from across Canada, including the federal government, provinces and territories, municipalities, Indigenous Peoples, power utilities, industry, innovators, laboratories, academia, and civil society. The SMR Action Plan currently has 513 commitments/actions made across the 117 partner organizations that are signatories to the SMR Action Plan. Each of these key enablers has contributed a chapter to the Action Plan that describes a concrete set of actions they are taking to seize the SMR opportunity for Canada. The Action Plan responds to all 53 recommendations in Canada’s SMR Roadmap and also includes voluntary actions that go beyond the SMR Roadmap recommendations.
Registration: Registration is free but required; we welcome CNS members, students and interested members of the broader community.
