The Organization of Canadian Nuclear Industries (OCNI)

The Organization of Canadian Nuclear Industries (OCNI), is the leading and trusted voice of the Canadian nuclear supply chain actively promoting the production of safe, clean and reliable nuclear electricity. Founded in 1979, OCNI is an association of more than 200 leading Canadian suppliers to the nuclear industry in Canada and abroad.

OCNI companies also work on medical and other safe applications of nuclear technology. Nuclear Power provides more than 50% of electrical energy in Ontario and contributes over $6.6 B/year to the Canadian economy with export sales over $1.2 B per annum. Canada is the world’s second largest producer of uranium at 10,000 tonnes/year.
