Innovation in the nuclear sector plays a critical role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and delivering good, middle-class jobs as Canada moves toward a low-carbon future.

Small Modular Reactors: the next wave of nuclear innovation

Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) have the potential to provide energy from non-emitting sources for a wide range of applications, such as grid-scale electricity generation and for use in heavy industry and remote communities.

Through Generation Energy, we heard that Canadian partners need to work together to chart a path forward for SMRs. In response, Natural Resources Canada asked interested provinces, territories, power utilities and other stakeholders to develop a stakeholder-driven process leading to an SMR Roadmap for Canada.

What are Small Modular Reactors?

SMRs use nuclear power to generate electricity. They are designed to be built at a smaller scale than traditional nuclear reactors with lower up-front capital costs and enhanced safety features. Some SMR designs are small enough to fit in a gymnasium.
