Toronto hosts first Future of Nuclear conference

The first Future of Nuclear conference is to be held in Toronto, Ontario.

The Province of Ontario is home to thousands of professionals working in the field of nuclear energy, many universities that provide courses in nuclear engineering, and several operating reactors. In addition, Ontario is currently planning a refurbishment of the Darlington Nuclear Generation Station, and is in the process of reviewing Ontario’s Long-Term Energy Plan.  Ontario’s capital, Toronto, is the ideal location to hold the first Future of Nuclear conference.

The conference will be held July 9, 2013 at MaRS discovery district, located blocks away from the University of Toronto, the Queen’s Park Provincial Parliament buildings, and Toronto’s financial district.
