    About the Society
    The Canadian Nuclear Society (CNS) promotes the exchange of information on all aspects of nuclear science and technology and its applications. This includes nuclear power generation, fuel production, uranium mining and refining, management of radioactive wastes and used fuel. Other topics include medical and industrial uses of radionuclides, occupational and environmental radiation protection, the science and technology of nuclear fusion, and associated activities in research and development. The CNS membership is intended for the individual directly involved with nuclear technology in any of the above areas, or one simply interested in nuclear topics.
    The Canadian Nuclear Society was established in 1979 as "The technical society of the Canadian Nuclear Association (CNA)". In 1998 the CNS incorporated independently as a federal, not-for-profit corporation.
    The CNS is a member of the Engineering Institute of Canada (EIC).
    Objectives of the CNS
    The objectives of the Canadian Nuclear Society are as follows:
    • to act as a forum for the exchange of information relating to nuclear science and technology;
    • to foster the development and beneficial utilization of nuclear science and technology for peaceful uses;
    • to encourage education in, and knowledge about, nuclear science and technology; and • to enhance the professional and technical capabilities of those involved in
    nuclear science and technology in the Canadian context.
    The CNS conducts its affairs through a council whose members are elected by the membership. The council is responsible to the membership in the development of policies and programs.
    The CNS is organized into branches and technical divisions; both are directed towards involvement of the individual member:
    • Branches are established on a location basis and hold local meetings and topical seminars on issues of interest.
    • Technical divisions are established on a discipline basis and handle specific technical areas of interest. They organize conferences and promote and support Canadian participation in the world-wide exchange of nuclear-related technical information.
