The talent is here, and this is a great opportunity for the entire province.”

“I’m happy to be here today and look forward to the discussions about how the expertise we have right here in New Brunswick can support the development of the next generation of nuclear technology that I believe will one day power the world,” said Honourable Mike Holland, Minister of Energy and Resource Development. “This day will have a major impact in the world of Energy and our province will prosper through the use of our resources and technology.  All of this can be done from right here in our backyard.” 

The event will provide an opportunity for manufacturers, suppliers and contractors to gather in a forum to understand the ARC Canada vision for business growth in this sector.
