The Advanced Nuclear Materials Research Centre (ANMRC) will be a state-of-the-art nuclear research facility that supports and expands CNL’s research into clean energy and production capabilities, radioactive materials, advanced reactor fuels, existing fuels, nuclear medicine, environmental stewardship, and global security. The 10,000-square-metre ANMRC is expected to be critical to the life extension and long-term reliability of existing reactors, including Canada’s fleet of CANDU reactors and other designs deployed around the world.

Construction of the new laboratory research complex is being managed via an integrated project delivery (IPD) agreement.
