My PowerPoint presentation, which has evolved over 10+ years, introduces the history of Canada’s nuclear science and technology, as well as the current status and where we are headed. It begins by asking why we should study nuclear (or technical) history, and then covers Canada’s history from Ernest Rutherford, through the founding years of the “Tube Alloys” project and the Montreal laboratory, through the development of research and CANDU power reactors, to the current refurbishments and future Small Modular Reactors. Not only is Canada’s nuclear story fascinating, but it also provides examples of why we should study history; As my final slide states, “Welcome to the future … while learning from the past”.
