Help Us Plan for Nuclear Power

We’re in a multi-year planning phase to see if nuclear power from small modular reactors could be a good fit for Saskatchewan and we want to hear from you!

ENGAGE WITH US

Engagement and consultation with the public, communities, customers, stakeholders and Indigenous peoples is a critical part of the planning phase.

In 2021, we held several information and engagement sessions. Summaries of what we heard, including answers to the questions asked can be viewed below: 

Your Top Questions

We've highlighted some of the most common questions we're asked when it comes to nuclear power from Small Modular Reactors (SMRs):

Good question! Check out the video below to see how it all works.

Cost means a lot to you. That’s why evaluating cost and risks is an important part of developing nuclear in the province. The project must be competitively priced against other reliable, non-emitting power options available in the 2030s to proceed. Small modular reactors have strong potential to be a competitive option.

We’ll follow all regulations from the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission. For more information on what that means, visit our managing waste page.

We’re committed to ongoing, meaningful engagement with First Nations and Métis citizens of Saskatchewan. We’ve heard about the importance to protect mother earth as we build the future power system. We’ve also heard that Indigenous participation as equity partners in the project, workforce training, and supply chain opportunities is key. For more information, check out the video below. 

To get to net zero, we’re considering all supply options. Curious about what options exist? Check out the Understanding our Future Supply Mix video.

We understand there is a significant opportunity to develop a skilled nuclear workforce in Saskatchewan. That’s why we’re working on a plan for workforce training to support the construction and operation of future facilities.
