CNA Leads Export Finance Workshop

Is your company a member of the Canadian Nuclear Association? Do you need to know more about export financing?

If the answer to these questions is yes, you should check your calendar for Thursday June 5.

Successful Exporting for Canadian Nuclear Companies will be a two-hour lunchtime opportunity to meet with Export Development Corporation (EDC) and learn how export financing can work for Canadian firms.

The workshop is also open to members of the Organization of Canadian Nuclear Industries (OCI).

You don’t need to be a direct exporter.  EDC, a federal Crown corporation, also works with companies in the export supply chain.

Watch the CNA website or the Daily NUze for a formal announcement in coming days, and be sure to register through EDC. Space will be limited.

Why: To make the most of the international opportunity for Canadian products, technology and expertise

When: Thursday June 5 – 11:30 to 1:30 EDT

Where: Downtown Toronto, or by webinar (pre-registration required – watch for coming announcement)

Who: CNA or OCI members

Cameco Named One of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers for 2014

By Romeo St-Martin
Digital Media Officer
Canadian Nuclear Association

Congratulations to Cameco.

For the fifth successive year, Cameco has been selected by the Globe and Mail as one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers for 2014.

The annual competition recognizes Canadian employers that have exceptional workplace diversity and inclusiveness programs.

“This award recognizes our long-standing track record in aboriginal and Métis employment,” said Tim Gitzel, Cameco’s president and CEO. “We are proud to be Canada’s leading industrial employer of aboriginal people and of the proactive approach we take to support career growth in this sector of our workforce.”

Here are some of the reasons why Cameco was recognized by the Globe:

  • Established a northern workforce strategy to focus on the recruitment of residents from northern Saskatchewan, of which a large percentage are Aboriginal – the strategy is managed by a dedicated team of employees who consult with Aboriginal leaders, local schools, community members and professionals on the creation of opportunities for residents as well as overall development of the northern community

Those of us in Canada’s nuclear industry already know it’s a great place to work, offering long-lasting, safe, well-trained and high-knowledge jobs to tens of thousands of Canadians. Cameco continues to set a great example that all Canadian businesses can admire and follow.
