Bruce Power receives response

08 November 2017

Bruce Power has received the Government of Canada’s response to the Standing Committee on Natural Resources’ report on the nuclear sector.

The response follows a report tabled by the committee in June calling on the Government of Canada to reaffirm its long-standing support for Canadian nuclear energy and research, particularly in regulatory and safety practices, research and innovation, leadership in nuclear power generation, and the development and commercialization of next-generation nuclear technologies.

The government, in its response, agreed with all seven recommendations proposed by the committee, and committed to providing greater stewardship to support a strong and safe nuclear sector.

The government agreed with the committee that nuclear energy is an important part of Canada’s clean energy mix, and will continue to play a key role in achieving Canada’s low-carbon future. The response points to the significance of the long-term commitment to Bruce Power’s Life-Extension Program.
