Nuclear Power: Helping Drive Ontario’s Economy

The nuclear industry more broadly contributes to the Ontario economy by creating jobs, supporting a province-wide manufacturing supply chain, and providing baseload generation electricity. It is a more than $5 billion industry that also contributes to the healthcare, research and innovation sectors.

Join us to:

  • Learn the contribution of Pickering and Darlington to Ontario’s energy system.
  • Get high-level overview of the OCC’s 2018 economic impact analysis on Pickering.
  • Identify broader supply chain benefits across the regional area of nuclear power.


  • Jessica Polak, VP Niagara Operations, OPG
  • Scott Berry, Senior Manager, Nuclear Corporate Relations & Communications, OPG
  • Reid McKay, Economic Analyst, Ontario Chamber of Commerce

This event is hosted by the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce.
