Deep River Academy
From time to time OCI comes across programs that benefit the industry and that our member companies may be interested in supporting. One example of this is the Deep River Science Academy or DRSA.
is a 6-week summer science immersion program for Canadian teenagers between the ages of 14 and 18. The program is a hands-on experience where students work on original scientific research projects. The students do not work in a classroom – they work in world-class professional laboratories with leading edge equipment. The main partner is Atomic Energy of Canada, Ltd., and the emphasis is on nuclear science. Projects are hands-on, interactive, on-going original research with potential real-life applications. The DRSA awards students with 2 academic cooperative high school credits upon completion of the program. Students stay in residence throughout the 6-weeks at a resort located 10 km outside the town of Deep River.
This initiative interests students in entering our business. As a follow-up the students are encouraged to make presentations to their schools about their experience and so inform a much larger number of students about what they do. By becoming involved in the program companies are able to identify quality students and perhaps remain in contact with them until they are seeking employment.

The first CANDU 6 plants went into service in the early 1980s as leading-edge technology, and the design has continuously evolved since to maintain superior technology and performance. The CANDU 6 power reactor offers a combination of proven and superior. CANDU exports depend on an Ontario sale; exports = jobs. CANDU 6 is AECL's 700 MWe class nuclear power reactor. The equivalent employment impact of an auto plant.



In South Korea—which has significant operating experience running both CANDU power plants and foreign competitors' technologies—CANDU 6 power plants have matched or exceeded other competitors' performance. Nuclear power is the most extensively regulated form of energy, required to meet very stringent safety and environmental requirements for all aspects, from mining to used fuel management.


public polls

75% of Ontarians think nuclear should play the same or an increased role in Canada’s energy mix over the next few decades The research program tracks overall support for and attitudes toward nuclear energy in Canada since the February 2005 benchmark. Support for nuclear power is up nominally in the last two years by +7 points. Ontarians support nuclear and prefer CANDU (February 2007 IPOS-REID poll.
