WiN Canada – Gender Gap Info Graphic 2022
WiN Canada continues to bring focus to the need for a more diverse workforce. The increased contribution of women is critical to the development of a strong, more creative workforce that can drive the innovation and productivity necessary for nuclear science and technology to continue its vital roles in energy, medicine, and industry. In 2019, WiN Canada commissioned a survey of its members and employer organizations to bring clarity and focus to the representation of women in the nuclear industry in Canada. The employer survey was repeated again in 2021. The survey results indicated the need for continued focus to bring diversity to the nuclear industry in Canada. WiN Canada is committed to working with employer organizations to chart the path for equity, diversity and inclusion to the workforce.
Modernizing Canada’s Radioactive Waste Policy
Canada has been a leader in the development and application of nuclear technologies for over half a century. While all radioactive waste is being managed safely, we want to ensure we have a strong Radioactive Waste Policy in place that is based on the best available science, continues to meet international practices, and reflects the values and principles of Canadians.
