The first study, “Feasibility of the Potential Deployment of Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) in Ontario”, assesses SMR siting requirements, technological maturity, and economics. The second study, “A Feasibility Study on the Recycling of Used CANDU Fuel”, explores the prospects to reuse and recycle used CANDU fuel – determining their feasibility, and potential implications for policies…

“The government of Ontario’s initiation of these studies is a further sign that it sees the potential of nuclear to help meet environmental and economic goals,” said CNA President John Barrett….


Natural Resources Canada co-funded the two independent studies, initiated by the Ontario Ministry of Energy (MOE).
