Ensuring Nuclear Safety in Canada

March 05, 2010

To address the medical isotope crisis, an expert panel convened by the federal government has concluded that Canada needs a new multipurpose research reactor. The University of Saskatchewan is part of a consortium proposing to build such a reactor, both to help solve the medical isotope crisis and provide neutron beams for cutting-edge science.

Dr. Michael Binder, President and CEO of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission will discuss:

  • Global and domestic trends in the nuclear industry;
  • CNSC's role in regulating safety and waste management for research reactors;
  • The strong safety record of nuclear energy in Canada; and
  • Common misconceptions about the nuclear industry.

Sponsored by the U of S Institute for Nuclear Studies, and organized by U of S Research Communications, this forum is part of a speaker series which aims to promote informed discussion about Saskatchewan's energy future, including the pros and cons of various technology and policy options.
