CNA2020 Sponsor Spotlight: Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission

The Canadian Nuclear Association is proud to shine a spotlight on each of its CNA2020 Gold-level sponsors, which includes the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC).

The CNSC was established in 2000 under the Nuclear Safety and Control Act. It reports to Parliament through the Minister of Natural Resources. The CNSC replaced the Atomic Energy Control Board (AECB), which was founded in 1946.

The CNSC regulates the development, production, possession, use and transportation of nuclear energy, materials and equipment to protect health, safety, security and the environment. It enforces Canada’s international commitments to control the development, production, transportation and use of nuclear energy and materials, including measures related to the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons. The CNSC’s mandate is also to share objective scientific, technical and regulatory information to the public about its activities and on the effects on the environment; on the health and safety of people; and on the development, production, possession, transport and use of nuclear substances.

The CNSC makes independent, fair and transparent decisions on licensing nuclear-related activities. The commission has up to seven appointed permanent members. Their decisions are supported by more than 800 employees. They are a diverse team of highly skilled nuclear professionals, including scientists, engineers, corporate professionals, new graduates and students. These employees review applications for licences according to regulatory requirements, make recommendations to the commission, and enforce compliance with the Nuclear Safety and Control Act, regulations and any licence conditions imposed by the commission.

At CNA2020, you can find the CNSC at Booth 108.

CNA Sponsor Spotlight: AECOM

AECOM is the world’s premier infrastructure firm, delivering professional services throughout the project life cycle. They are planners, designers, engineers, consultants and construction managers driven by a common purpose to deliver a better world.

In Canada and in the nuclear domain, AECOM has provided engineering design for waste storage and disposal, and has supported the licensing processes for nuclear organizations in Canada.

Globally AECOM provides engineering, procurement and construction services to nuclear utilities and designs, constructs, and operates nuclear repositories. Their public and private sector clients count on them to take on the most complex challenges and pioneer innovative solutions that push the limits of what’s possible. Their projects span energy, the environment, transportation, buildings and water.

In January, AECOM twice received recognition.

AECOM earned a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2020 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) and was designated a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality in the United States. The Corporate Equality Index is the national benchmarking tool on corporate policies and practices pertinent to LGBTQ employees. The perfect score puts AECOM among the top-ranked firms within the engineering and construction sector for a third year.

Employers earning top ratings took concrete steps to ensure greater equity for LGBTQ workers and their families in the form of comprehensive policies, benefits and practices. The CEI rating criteria have three key pillars: non-discrimination policies across business entities, equitable benefits for LGBTQ workers and their families and supporting an inclusive culture and corporate social responsibility.

AECOM was also named to Fortune magazine’s list of the World’s Most Admired Companies for the sixth consecutive year. The annual survey is conducted by Fortune and global management consulting firm Korn Ferry, with top executives, directors and securities analysts rating enterprises in their industry on nine criteria, including innovation, people management, social responsibility and global competitiveness.

AECOM is the Gold-level sponsor for the CNA2020 Friday breakfast and keynote address.
