Ottawa to announce $50M for Bruce Power nuclear plant expansion

WNews 1 Min Read

The federal government is spending $50 million on preliminary work for an expansion of the Bruce Power nuclear plant — Ottawa’s first major investment in expanding a large nuclear plant in decades.

The money will come from the Clean Electricity Pre-development Program, a Natural Resources Canada fund that supports preparatory work on large clean electricity projects.

That work will include launching Indigenous consultations, getting regulatory approvals and preparing the construction site.

Natural Resources and Energy Minister Jonathan Wilkinson and Ontario Energy Minister Todd Smith are making the official announcement today.
