The Canadian Nuclear Society (CNS) promotes the exchange of information on all aspects of nuclear science and technology and its applications. This includes nuclear power generation, fuel production, uranium mining and refining, management of radioactive wastes and used fuel. Other topics include medical and industrial uses of radionuclides, and occupational and environmental radiation protection.
Nuclear technology improves our lives in so many ways. Breakthroughs in nuclear medicine mean better diagnoses and treatments for cancer and other diseases. Hydrogen fuel research may produce cars that don’t pollute. Small reactors could bring cheap electricity to anywhere in Canada. Improved fault-detection technology makes nuclear power even more safe.
