President's Message

The Canadian nuclear industry has been revitalized in 2016 with announcements of Major Component Replacement and Refurbishment projects at Bruce and Darlington. In addition, offshore CANDU new build projects are now very close to realization in Argentina and Romania and the AFCR project in China has passed another hurdle.    

Most countries of the world are now committed to reducing their GHG emissions – which means an increasing role for nuclear generation in enabling developed and developing nations counties to achieve their GHG targets. According to the World Nuclear Association there are now 58 reactors under construction in 14 countries with another 167 reactors planned.

So, in this backdrop of nuclear industry rejuvenation and to celebrate surpassing the 200-member milestone, the Organization of Canadian Nuclear Industries (OCNI) has done a facelift with a new logo, a new tagline, and a new more engaging website. The red maple leaf shows that we are a proudly Canadian organization promoting and serving the Canadian nuclear industry and its supplier network. The green tagline “Clean Energy for a Low Carbon Economy” shows that we support the production of clean nuclear energy that is cost effective while creating high value and sustainable jobs in local communities.

While OCNI has a new look - the same team of dedicated staff will continue to serve our member companies in the same efficient and courteous manner to which you have become accustomed.  

Ron Oberth
OCNI - President & CEO
