Canada's Small Modular Reactor
(SMR) Action Plan
About the Action Plan
Canada's Small Modular Reactor (SMR) Action Plan is Canada's plan for the development, demonstration and deployment of SMRs for multiple applications at home and abroad.
SMRs are a promising new technology that could unlock a range of benefits: economic, geopolitical, social, and environmental. Canada’s SMR Action Plan brings together essential enabling partners, leveraging their strengths to lock-in these benefits and lead the world on SMRs.
The Action Plan is the result of a pan-Canadian effort bringing together key enablers from across Canada, which we call “Team Canada” – the federal government, provinces and territories, Indigenous Peoples and communities, power utilities, industry, innovators, laboratories, academia, and civil society.
Each of these key enablers has contributed a chapter to the Action Plan, describing a concrete set of actions they are taking to seize the SMR opportunity for Canada. Collectively, these chapters demonstrate the breadth of engagement on SMRs across the country and outline the depth of progress and ongoing efforts.
The Action Plan builds on the momentum of Canada's SMR Roadmap, which convened Team Canada to chart a vision for this emerging area of nuclear innovation. The Roadmap marked the beginning of Canada's plan to lead the world in this game changing technology. Read the Small Modular Reactor Roadmap report (PDF, 7.7MB).
