Canada's Nuclear Renaissance: Implications for Public Policy


On June 19th, the Public Policy Forum held a half-day dialogue in Toronto with more than 30 CEOs and senior officials from the industrial, financial and energy sectors, federal and provincial governments, regulatory agencies, organized labour and the research community to discuss the implications of this nuclear renaissance. The session sought to examine current trends nationally and internationally in nuclear energy, outline key public policy challenges, and discuss whether Canadian policy and regulatory regimes are adequate for this new era of nuclear development.
