Support Bruce Power’s 10-year Operating Licence Renewal Application

This year, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) will hold a two-part public hearing on an application by Bruce Power to renew, for a period of 10 years, its power reactor operating licence for the Bruce A and B stations located in Tiverton, ON.

The current licence authorizes Bruce Power to generate electricity from its eight reactors and produce medical-grade Cobalt-60 from its four Bruce B units. The approval of a 10-year licence will allow it to continue operation over this period, while progressing with its Life-Extension Program, which includes its Major Component Replacement Project, allowing the site to operate to 2064.

Since 2001, Bruce Power has proven to be a safe, reliable operator that continues to seek ways to improve its performance and increase its safety performance. Bruce Power, as an organization, focuses heavily on continuous improvement, and we applaud the company for these efforts. Working together with our organizations and the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, we believe Bruce Power can improve upon its already impressive safety record.

Bruce Power’s Life-Extension will create jobs, provide reliable and low-cost electricity to millions of Ontario residents, clean the air we breathe, save lives through medical isotopes, and pour billions annually into the local and provincial economies.

The Canadian Nuclear Workers’ Council, Grey Bruce Labour Council, Women in Nuclear, North American-Young Generation Nuclear (NA-YGN), Bruce Power Pensioners Association, Power Workers’ Union, and The Society of Energy Professionals are asking you to sign this petition to show your support for Bruce Power’s 10-year CNSC operating licence renewal application.
